The list has meant I have had meals at a beautiful table, too much cake, a wish that came true, though I've not had the starry night experience - so much rain!. There has been lots of music, silly jokes, a donation (through sudden tears) to the hospice where Barry was cared for, and lots of flower arrangements. I have plenty of time and used some of it to finalise my Desert Island Disc selection over a couple of pleasant evenings. I made a promise to myself to use my word for the year to support me every day, and I made contact with more people (I had to be brave and risk rejection...). I have made up my mind to keep going till the end of November with it.
There are still problems and dark days - a funeral I couldn't attend, but this daily focus on achieveing something helps me along, makes me stronger.
All the restrictions are for the sake of helping one another after all, and though still some way off an end is in sight.
And the forest is still beautiful, even on a rainy day
