Another stunning day – a girl could get used to this. People outside in shirtsleeves. I just ran into JM and Richard, who said, “How can you leave weather like this?” Oh, but I can. Or at Pierre Elliot Trudeau once said, “Just watch me!”
Had a tuneup and a check-up this morning, the first with my shrink, whom I see now once or twice a year to touch base, let her know how I am, get advice – she’s the ideal mother, calm, accepting, and completely trustworthy, and she knows me better than anyone on earth. Today we were reminiscing about my visits to her during the early days of the divorce, when I was a terrified, depressed, unemployed single mother of two fairly difficult kids in a falling down house. Things, shall we say, have changed. Thank the good lord.
Then to get myself checked out with my GP, a wonderful tall woman with big feet, also rather like my mother, only also supportive and trustworthy. We talk about having big feet a lot, as she pokes and prods. All seems well so far. Fingers and toes crossed.
End of the Ryerson term last night – another very interesting group. Today a bunch of emails I will post here because they say nice things, so why not? Obviously, the people who didn’t like the class did not send notes. The first is from a young woman who’s getting married in April and announced that she’s coming back to take the course again in September.
I LOVED the class. It’s one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I didn’t feel a burning need to tell a secret story, but just wanted to find a creative outlet and I have always loved to write. It’s such a great forum. Going to take the summer off and enjoy it, but can’t wait to start up again!
