my new companion — “Boy!”

I adopted him from the Humane Society and has he ever adopted me!

In the midst of the terrible times I am going through I have him.

I’ve always had dogs and cats in my life.  I always will.

He’s eight.

Going through the house, so many memories.  Cleaning it up.  Trying to eat.  Under stress.

Hope I make it.  I have been to doctor and have high blood pressure, a first in my life.  Am addressing this through diet and exercise — but I attribute it to the stress that started in 2000, and continued to 2006 — the layoff, the loss of parents, the coming apart of everything that felt solid about my life.

I don’t think there is any solidity in this country anymore.  I think the next 30 years here aren’t going to be pretty.

  1. Thank you for saving me Bonnaire. Though I did not have the physical strength to make the journey it was your kind offer that came at just the right time. No details here. Tried to call you but couldn’t get a line the other night. I am going to sell some stuff and wiill send you a small check probably next week. It has been on ny mind to do so. You are always present in my prayers.
    I am so glad you found Boy! And that he loves you.

  2. “If It Be Your Will”

    If it be your will
    That I speak no more
    And my voice be still
    As it was before
    I will speak no more
    I shall abide until
    I am spoken for
    If it be your will
    If it be your will
    That a voice be true
    From this broken hill
    I will sing to you
    From this broken hill
    All your praises they shall ring
    If it be your will
    To let me sing
    From this broken hill
    All your praises they shall ring
    If it be your will
    To let me sing

    If it be your will
    If there is a choice
    Let the rivers fill
    Let the hills rejoice
    Let your mercy spill
    On all these burning hearts in hell
    If it be your will
    To make us well

    And draw us near
    And bind us tight
    All your children here
    In their rags of light
    In our rags of light
    All dressed to kill
    And end this night
    If it be your will

    If it be your will.

      1. Yes and no? I did not write it. But it is my song in many ways. Practiced it this afternoon. Challenging because it is repetitive.
        How to color it and sing freely at the same time.

        I will sing it for you. When I get there. God willing.
