A Room With a View

Autumn Equinox is almost upon us, and here in North America we will ‘officially’ change seasons. Out with Summer and in with Fall.

I, for one, will not be sad to see the last of these summer days. Apart from the year I spent recovering from my motorbike accident waaaay back in 1983, this summer has been the hardest, physically, I’ve ever had. I only touched on the high-low-lights in my post, ‘X’ factors, but you get the idea.

I’m thankful for our portable air conditioner, a family doctor with a sense of humour that matches mine, technological advances in the treatment of all sorts of ailments, the wisdom of hegdewives and their herbs, and the infinite patience and love of Mrs Widders and Widdercat. (both of whom knew when to hug and when to bug off)

Thanks also, to you who take the time to read my words here, for your kind thoughts, comments and emails. Never doubt the strength of a kind word.

 I know my posts have been a bit thin on the ground this last while, but there’s a wind blowing down from the North bringing with it a renewal of my energies. I’m looking forward to posting regularly again … and …

… this is my 200th post!

An excellent reason to aim for another 200.
