The more I wondered about the reason for this lunch out of the blue, the more I worried about it. But then he showed up in my office at 11:30, and I was so happy to see him. We went to a restaurant we used to go to all the time. We talked and laughed and caught up with each other. I finally asked him why did he suddenly e-mail when we haven't gotten together for so long. And he said at the age of 72, he can't put off things, if he wants to see someone, he better do it... because "someday is now."
I told him how grateful I was that he took that initiative. It was so good to see him. We resolved, as old friends do, to stay in touch, to get together more. Hopefully this, unlike the other resolutions, will be true. But even if not, I do appreciate the time we spent today.
Oh, there are a million things going on, but right now, I have the memory of a beautiful vietnamese lunch with a wonderful friend on a warm spring afternoon. And that shall sustain me into a beautiful sleep on a lovely warm evening - the first with the window open, and the sheers billowing in the breeze. That's quite good enough for today.
May you find what is good enough to sustain you for today. xoxox
