Grateful I am

October 14, 2016

And grateful for this loving being.
* For Tom & Bessie, & our laughing, friendly lunch at the terrific Moroccan restaurant Mogador. We are adults together, we who were teenagers in separation—even when we took the same classes. Possibly the case for most teens, not counting the one you tell everything to.
* For a sunny day. "And if the weather pleases me, I'm happy every day."
* That I have enough: money, friends, thoughts, books (although I bought a few today).
* That the most overtly misogynist presidential candidate in my lifetime is actually causing some consciousness raising, most notably among evangelical women. And maybe among men?
* That Johnny is healthy, buoyant, loving—and still the most handsome Stanton in Manhattan.
