My Day

I had a very restless night, getting up about every hour to urinate.

I go back to bed, rarely to sleep.

I spend the rest of the early morning thinking, mostly about Betty, whom I miss.

Nothing lasts forever. 

At my age, I know I don’t have much time left and make the most of the time I do have.

I spend my time reading, and always, Danny alongside me watching the TV station CNN.

I am content.

Like some “nut,” I talk to Betty.

I try to keep her abreast of what is happening.
