Bouncing Off the Walls

How do you hold a good man back while at the same time holding him up?

Mike wants to do something. He folded clothes today, did a load of laundry, made notes about the camping trip this weekend.

His heart is damaged, but his mind is not. He's tired of thinking about it. Old friends, friends who haven't called in seven years, are calling him.

"They're only calling because they think I might be dying," he said. It's true. His friends are coming out of the woodwork. It's a good thing. I know it is, but we're both stunned by it, overwhelmed by it even.

I've been doing cooking therapy.

Gotta go!
Mike's headed to the Boy Scout meeting, just for a little while.


Thank you for listening, jb
