Long live all maidens

easy and beautiful !

Long live mature women also,

Tender and loveable and full of good labor.

The Deed is Done …


I loved your recollection of the meeting with Francis that left you ‘exhausted and exhilarated’. The ‘merging of spirits’ sounds ethereal and innocent enough, Adria, but is this not another side of marriage?  Secrets and longings.  Physical and otherwise.  How ironic that both of us are talking about men: ‘other men’, men ‘other than our husbands’. I wonder what all this means.  Perhaps only that not much in life is reassuring, not even terribly long marriages.

Since it is cold and grey, I will spend the afternoon at my computer editing Opera Lady, which I will send before the end of the day. First, I’ll buy more tulips just to prove that I do not have to wait for Mother Nature to confirm that it is officially Spring. Sundays are always daunting for me, especially a Sunday after a week off of school. The thought of going back is never easy, but this time it should be. After all, as we discussed, I did the deed. It took all of twenty minutes on line to end a thirty-year career. Here is a liberating, yet frightening thought. Does this mean that I will be on permanent March Break?

Hope you are having a restful and pleasant Sunday. I am sending you a spring bouquet!
