PILLS ! and more PILLS !
dear peanut ~
you and i are minimalists. happy little have enoughs.
you’re all about the basics of life
and i’m all about contentment with those basics.
but one of the biggest basics of all . . . is good health.
not lots of money and more and more things.
but just good health. of course it helps your good health if you have
enough money. but that’s a whole other post we won’t EVEN go into
. . . not today anyway! i don’t have the energy. LOL.
i find good health is something you don’t think much about
until you don’t have it.
you know . . . i now take 9 different medications for this heart thing.
all with irritating side effects.
and all my heart really wants is to be calm and happy.
lordy lordy! we could open up a drug store!
i have come to terms with it and quit fighting it in my mind finally.
that only makes my particular problem worse.
it’s the path that both of my grandmothers walked.
and i can only control so much of the externals. and that i do try to do.
proper food. sufficient exercise. trying to stay as calm and serene as
possible. but still . . .
it irritates me that i . . . whom hates ‘pills’ . . . am taking so many just to
still . . .
the alternative is not acceptable to me just now. LOL.
for one thing . . .
i haven’t ever seen my beloved carmel by the sea yet . . .
here’s carmel by the sea
it’s a magical place.
and i haven’t seen the giant redwoods.
they are waiting for me someday
to stand beside them in wonderment.
there are simply no words.
yup. they’re waiting for me.
they’ve waited a long time!
i suppose they’re the main thing on my bucket list.
nor have i seen another beautiful place i’ve dreamt about seeing . . .
the city of lights.
yes. i know. cliche’ maybe.
paris in the rain.
a croissant in a little sidewalk cafe’.
the architecture and fountains.
not exactly your paris texas . . . is it!
and to see london once again.
i dearly love london.
i am grateful for all those terrible pills.
and i realize it’s money well spent.
it’s keeping me going. like the energizer bunny.
and i like banging that drum!
so . . . here’s to the necessary pills
and big trees
and romantic cities . . .
and to LIFE!
til then old bean.
