I come to these words.

The Dalai Lama says,  "It’s best not to get too excited or too depressed by the ups and downs of life."

I agree.  I do feel this as a calm celebration.  Chris and I shared some tears today, bittersweet ones, and  I am calm.  When the computer went down for the machine today, I stayed calm, knowing I could just come back the next day, perhaps forever.   Perhaps, Groundhog's Day was to be mine, and that would be okay.

When I left, Kirk was playing Solitaire on one of the computers.  I think of that, one person playing Solitaire on a computer, rather than using a deck of cards, touching and flipping cards.  I have been touched throughout this, as I had to be physically manipulated, and placed, and drawn on with different colored pens each day.   I hope that we never get so advanced that the machine does it all.  I think the physical touch and the people, people caring, are an important part of the healing.   May we all stay in touch, and aware of touch, our keys on the keyboard and the smoothness of the Ace of Spades as it lies down with the Ace of Hearts.
