... but it would have been FIERCE!
The place that my brother & me would have shared. Instead, I am missing him today. Not to diminish the national tragedy, but I am somewhere else with mourning.
Saying that isn't to say that I am in grief. You celebrate the love and joy that someone brought to you by moving on, and carrying with you all that love. And for real, that is what I do. When I think of my Mom and my darling Brother, I remember that they would not want me sitting around being miserable.
That was what made leaving Mookie a done deal. Whatever she did, it wouldn't have mattered, really. She could no more change than the sequence of the seasons ...
... and her season had ended.
KT called to sing 'Happy Birthday', and asked about the Mook's. I had to tell her that we didn't talk, though I have called several times. I told her that I am really not one for being somewhere I am not wanted, and they did not want me (Mookie is lil' Mook's spokeperson and rep in that matter). I will send Mookie a birthday card, as hers is in a couple of weeks. The lesson in all this?
NO MORE VIRGOS!
Got that from Gary Barnett, former coach at Northwestern. That is what he preached while he was there, and what he told the boys when they beat ND during their Rose Bowl season, where they beat BOTH Michigan and OSU to earn the Big Ten title.
'Paralysis by Analysis' has doomed more hopes than actual failure has. If you try, you didn't fail if you learned from it. A rodeo in Calagry is the same as a rodeo in Tulsa to the subjects. Bull throws rider, riders tries to ride bull.
Anyway, my log in expires shortly ... I will finish this thought ...
