Years ago I asked my students to write about the best day of their life so far. This got me thinking: what was my best day? I thought back to college and a day I spent with Lane at his grandmother's house. We listened to music- on a Victrola! and read some of his old essays. It was a normal day for two people who didn't thrive on 'normal.'
Well, this summer Lane fell ill and spent 28 days in the hospital! After he got out I went to see him and we had another great day. We watched a bit of a movie, had dinner at Denny's (we are not gourmets) and visited Swallow Falls state park. Ah! What a lovely place! And I spent time outside- I NEVER do that!
