Hoping You Have a Great Holiday Season!



I will likely not have time, the next few days, to be corresponding with people and/or visiting peoples’ blogs.  My wife, Marla, is (again) having complicated reconstructive shoulder surgery and i’ll be too preoccupied with that; my blogs will continue, as they have been prescheduled (as they usually are).  Marla requires extra help, nutritionally, with enteral tube feedings to her stomach, which she must always have due to complications from a prior neck surgery; most of the nurses in hospitals, believe it or not, are inexperienced with proper enteral tube feeding. 


[Eternity is all around us.]


Together we
made a smiling snowman
(in magic, and he is we)
danced around

And when he melts
to those very last

(of who we are)
he’ll be back again some day
