Winding down, d o w n, d o w n.....

Yep - I think I can feel 2009 winding down - it is hard to describe but it is almost something tangible. I'm moving slower - noticed it first yesterday afternoon when the sun was so warm inside the car and I wanted to sleep. The feeling carried over to this morning when Luz and I had her study in my car in the parking lot of McDonalds downtown. Even when I realized my battery was dead (the lights were on), I felt no sense of rushing to get anywhere. I asked the young men in the car beside us to help me use my handy dandy jumper cables and it worked! Luz and I came to my house where we grabbed a quick bite and then went out to the hospital to visit the dear old friend I mentioned. It appears we were there at just the right time of day because he was so awake and talkative and I will treasure the time we had. I hate I missed his wife - she had gone home to get a shower and a little rest but I got to be with his son and daughter-in-law. We made a few more calls and went to the grocery store where I ran into Eileen's beautiful daughter - Les. I noticed a beautiful young woman with green eyes and long blonde hair as I walked past her and she called my name! What a treat! She lives on my side of town now so maybe we will run into each other again soon. Leah called to say they are going to try and get away early Thursday afternoon and should be here in time for dinner! Woo Hoo! We can't wait to see them. I have a lot to do before they all get here but for now - I plan to hold that feeling of winding down. Relaxed - like a sundial in a warm garden - in France or Italy - or even at the coast with the sea breeze moving the clouds across the sky of 2009 as it continues to wind down.
