Thank you for the update. I suppose
it was needed: helping aging parents,
recording music, traveling, teaching, romancing.
This is all so positive and delightful.
I am a little dizzy taking it all in right now.
I am not sure why.
I just moved houses. Again.
It's a whirlwind in the Vegas summer.
Maybe that is why I am dizzy.
The home is in an older area
a wood burning fireplace, huge pine trees
that litter my pool by the minute.
It is a process getting to know a house
we are having quite a fiery relationship so far.
Our second night the pool pump was stuck by lightening.
I might have blamed my girl if everything burned,
it was her prompting and insistence that we move.
She has two more years living with me
I admit, I will give that girl anything she wants.
She seeks a new set of faces to entertain her.
And a female track coach...the previous ones
rub me the wrong way. As most people do.
I completed legal work for Vanity Fair.
Dan, that great guy Dan, gave him my number.
Wrongful deaths of Cirque performers.
That is how the legal work goes right now:
sporadic and upon my choosing.
Being queen of my army is the focus.
But, I will take the job that came last night
a hygienist at the dental office I go to
scammed out of her life savings
by love on a dating website.
Love...then marriage. Congratulations dear.
That is relevant news. If I make the invite list
I will be sure to wear something other then black. .
As marriage was made legal nationwide
There was felt a tinge of sadness. Simply because
some dear friends will now
experience the interesting conundrum
that including the state in a love affair can cause.
Yet, I am old-ishly jaded. Let's celebrate!
