  •  I read your widower column and thought about (6+ / 0-)

    your loss and your changes and I was glad that you could share with DK and also that so many people responded with hugs and stuff.
    Today I feel like talking about ironing.  It's comforting. I think.  the smoothing of the cloth, starting with the back of the shirt, and the heat comes gently off the fabric with a sweet clean smell that's also a reminder of the things we do to keep going, getting dirty, washing and drying and straightening out.  The little tasks that fill the quiet building of our lives and don't require heroics, just putting one foot or hand in front of the other.  
    I wish you hugs.  

    WE must hang together or we will all hang separately. B.Franklin
