There was a service for my friend’s daughter on Sunday.  It was beautifully decorated with sunflowers and white roses.  My friend was stoic. We could see that she has the weight of the world on her shoulders.

My sister and I have been around her. We took her out to dinner on Friday night and on shopping on Saturday.  This week, as she returns to work, we will take turns checking in on her.

Death clearly shows us brevity and beauty of life.  That is the only certainty we have: one day we will die.  So let’s not waste this finite, precious gift.  Do more, worry less.  

So many things I want to do that I keep leaving for tomorrow. Always waiting for something to do something.  The time is now.  It is always now.

On Friday I am going in for another dental surgery.  The 2 laser treatments I had done to try to save this 1 implant worked for a couple of years. The latest x-rays shows that it stopped working. I cannot wait any longer. I will be removing 1 implant to hopefully still save the other 2.  Fingers crossed.

Tomorrow marks the 1 Year anniversary of the first Covid case in New Rochelle.  We will be observing one minute of silence at exact 12pm.  At 7pm there will be “Clap Because We Care” – stand outside or open our windows to make noise in support of health care workers and essential workers. 

I thought, that at most, this would last 2 weeks. We are now marking anniversaries.  Such a crazy time in this place called Earth.
