Context is Everything


If context is everything, then this was a delicious meal.


And if context is everything and you live in Los Angeles, then this is a river.

And, in the context of his situation, the man who loves me is where he needs to be. Weakened by cancer, chemo, and radiation, he's in a facility where he is being cared for to an extent that I cannot provide chez moi. As he put it, the place is not burdened by pretensions of elegance, but if you sit on the patio (as he and I did today)  and look up, the view is all right.


There are many reasons to be hopeful. He is better than he was a week ago. We may again get back to this:

And in the meanwhile, I am filled with gratitude for the love and support of family and friends.
Thank you.

All good things, even if they come slowly- I would want that for you and those you love.

It makes me sad to hear of the difficult time your man is having. I hope he continues to grow stronger in this new space so he can get back to yours with you soon. Sending you good thoughts.
