Did I tell you that I get severe insomnia about three nights out of the month- always at the same time of month?&#0160; Well, I do. My doctor prescribed Xanax for those nights, and while I usually don&#39;t go for Western medicine in this way, I finally did give into it as nothing else worked to soothe me to sleep and I was SO tired (literally) of being tired.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Anyway- our 1 year old Lab decided to eat the whole bottle of Xanax a while back. Leaving me with a huge emergency vet bill, and worse yet, no Xanax.&#0160; I never re-filled the prescription.&#0160; Too tired, I guess.&#0160; So it was a rough week for me of little sleep.&#0160; Finally last night I was able to fall asleep early and the girls and I slept in until 7:15 a.m.&#0160; While I would not use the word &quot;refreshed&quot; to describe my current state, I am &quot;better than bad.&quot;&#0160; And that is good.</p>\r\n<p>And on another note, I used to bake and cook a lot more. I used to spend time in Whole Foods just browsing for an hour or two and really thinking about each item I dropped into the cart. Well, I don&#39;t have the time these days. Isn&#39;t that sad?&#0160; Brad does more of the shopping and...he&#39;s just a good ol&#39; boy from the Midwest. He thinks Whole Foods is just a ripoff for suckers like me.&#0160; Whatever.</p>\r\n<p>So I&#39;ve been eating a lot of toast and burritos, I&#39;m ashamed to say... you know- quick and easy. Until yesterday I remembered that in a pinch when I really need something quick and healthy, I can do a kale smoothie:&#0160; <br />Handful of de-stemmed kale, couple cups of almond milk, a big glob of Almond Butter in the Vitamix and...<em>baddaboom.&#0160; </em>Nummy.</p>\r\n<p>Also in the news...have any of you guys heard of the popular website <a href=\"http://www.blogher.com\" target=\"_self\">Blog Her?&#0160;&#0160;</a>Someone with a good mind for social media told me I should write an article for them. And so I did. I wrote one on coming back to my music career after being a mom. ( So you know - anyone can write for them, it&#39;s kind of cool.)&#0160; (And <a href=\"http://adage.com/article/media/sheknows-buys-blogher/295684/\" target=\"_self\">here is an interesting story </a>on how flippping huge this company is.)</p>\r\n<p>After I posted my story, the next day, one of the site editors emailed me and asked me if I would re-write my story a little bit so they could syndicate it on their site for a special series on &quot;Taking Courage.&quot;&#0160; My jaw dropped. This means my story will run on the front page of the Blog Her site on July 14th, the week of their big conference in LA.&#0160; My social media wiz friend was blown away.&#0160; So, I&#39;m pretty stoked!&#0160; I&#39;ll make sure and let you know about it when it happens. </p>\r\n<p>I am working it, people. I am working it hard.&#0160; There are more things coming up- some things that&#0160; maybe you help me with too if you want! You will be amazed at how hard I am going to work to get my new album out there.</p>\r\n<p>Well, on that note- I should get moving along.&#0160; I hear that we will be able to make my release date of the 29th of this month for the digital download of my album.&#0160; I hope we can pull it off. It&#39;s really gonna be tight. It&#39;ll be a miracle.</p>\r\n<p>XO<br />C</p>\r\n<p>P.S. Photos today include:&#0160; <br />A &quot;sparkler&quot; shot that (after some photo cleaning and editing) may make it on the back cover of the CD.&#0160; <br />My smoothie (described above).<br />An artichoke from the garden (yes!)<br />My guitar, I&#39;ve had it since my early twenties.</p>",

You will be amazed at how hard I am going to work to get my new album out there.</p>\r\n<p>Well, on that note- I should get moving along.&#0160; I hear that we will be able to make my release date of the 29th of this month for the digital download of my album.&#0160; I hope we can pull it off. It&#39;s really gonna be tight. It&#39;ll be a miracle.</p>\r\n<p>XO<br />C</p>\r\n<p>P.S. Photos today include:&#0160; <br />A &quot;sparkler&quot; shot that (after some photo cleaning and editing) may make it on the back cover of the CD.&#0160; <br />My smoothie (described above).<br />An artichoke from the garden (yes!)<br />My guitar, I&#39;ve had it since my early twenties.</p>",

You&#39;ll probably have more butter than you need for this amount of asparagus, but don&#39;t despair; leftover ginger-miso butter tastes sublime on grilled fish or steak, too.</p>\r\n",

         "content": "<p>How do you remember your grandmothers (assuming they lived long enough that you <em>can</em> remember them!) I remember two grandmothers, two great-grandmothers, and one great-great-grandmother with great fondness. One thing I do not remember is any of them playing with kids. They&#0160;may have held&#0160;a wee tot. They may have read to a young child. They may have let a child help them with chores (gardening, cleaning, sewing, cooking). One thing they never, ever did was to play with a child. Thus, since I learned how to be a grandmother from my own, my grandchild and great-grandchildren surely don&#39;t think of me as playful. Today, I will be re-confirming that&#0160;for them when Hunky Husband and I attend a celebration of&#0160;Next Generation 1&#39;s and Next Generation 2&#39;s birthdays at a gathering in their home.&#0160; (NG1 hit age 5 on the 6th, NG2 hit age 4 on the 12th.)</p>\r\n<p>What&#0160;will their gifts be? As usual - a check - for money. I always got money from my grandparents (of whatever degree) and that&#39;s what I pass on to our grandkids (of whatever degree). How boring.

I remember two grandmothers, two great-grandmothers, and one great-great-grandmother with great fondness. One thing I do not remember is any of them playing with kids. They&#0160;may have held&#0160;a wee tot. They may have read to a young child. They may have let a child help them with chores (gardening, cleaning, sewing, cooking). One thing they never, ever did was to play with a child. Thus, since I learned how to be a grandmother from my own, my grandchild and great-grandchildren surely don&#39;t think of me as playful. Today, I will be re-confirming that&#0160;for them when Hunky Husband and I attend a celebration of&#0160;Next Generation 1&#39;s and Next Generation 2&#39;s birthdays at a gathering in their home.&#0160; (NG1 hit age 5 on the 6th, NG2 hit age 4 on the 12th.)</p>\r\n<p>What&#0160;will their gifts be? As usual - a check - for money. I always got money from my grandparents (of whatever degree) and that&#39;s what I pass on to our grandkids (of whatever degree). How boring. When&#0160;we received the invitation to the&#0160;joint celebration, I knew that there had to be something for the boys to open! It won&#39;t be games, it won&#39;t be candies, it won&#39;t be terribly frivolous (engineers are practical people!)

One of my projects this summer is to take out the several stumps that were in the yard when I moved in.

They are overwhelmingly working class kids, the children of cops and firefighters, city and factory workers, school teachers and small business owners. With some exceptions they are from families short on stock portfolios and futures, but long on love of country and service to the nation. Just yesterday, too many were lost and a knock on the door late last night brought their families to their knees in a grief that will never-ever go away. Thousands more have suffered wounds since it all started, but like anyone who loses life or limb while serving others-including our firefighters and law enforcement personnel who on 9/11 were the first casualties of this war-they are not victims as they knew what they were about, and were doing what they wanted to do. </span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">The chattering class and all those who doubt America&#39;s intentions, and resolve, endeavor to make them and their families out to be victims, but they are wrong. We who have served and are serving refuse their sympathy. Those of us who have lived in the dirt, sweat and struggle of the arena are not victims and will have none of that. Those with less of a sense of service to the nation never understand it when men and women of character step forward to look danger and adversity straight in the eye, refusing to blink, or give ground, even to their own deaths. </span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">The protected can&#39;t begin to understand the price paid so they and their families can sleep safe and free at night. No, they are not victims, but are warriors, your warriors, and warriors are never victims regardless of how and where they fall. Death, or fear of death, has no power over them. Their paths are paved by sacrifice, sacrifices they gladly make...for you. They prove themselves everyday on the field of battle...for you. They fight in every corner of the globe...for you. They live to fight...for you, and they never rest because there is always another battle to be won in the defense of America.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">I will leave you with a story about the kind of people they are...about the quality of the steel in their backs...about the kind of dedication they bring to our country while they serve in uniform and forever after as veterans. Two years ago when I was the Commander of all U.S. and Iraqi forces, in fact, the 22nd of April 2008, two Marine infantry battalions, 1/9 &quot;The Walking Dead,&quot; and 2/8 were switching out in Ramadi. One battalion in the closing days of their deployment going home very soon, the other just starting its seven-month combat tour. Two Marines, Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, 22 and 20 years old respectively, one from each battalion, were assuming the watch together at the entrance gate of an outpost that contained a makeshift barracks housing 50 Marines. The same broken down ramshackle building was also home to 100 Iraqi police, also my men and our allies in the fight against the terrorists in Ramadi, a city until recently the most dangerous city on earth and owned by Al Qaeda. </span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">Yale was a dirt poor mixed-race kid from Virginia with a wife and daughter, and a mother and sister who lived with him and he supported as well. He did this on a yearly salary of less than $23,000. Haerter, on the other hand, was a middle class white kid from Long Island. They were from two completely different worlds. Had they not joined the Marines they would never have met each other, or understood that multiple America&#39;s exist simultaneously depending on one&#39;s race, education level, economic status, and where you might have been born. But they were Marines, combat Marines, forged in the same crucible of Marine training, and because of this bond they were brothers as close, or closer, than if they were born of the same woman.</span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">The mission orders they received from the sergeant squad leader I am sure went something like: &quot;Okay you two clowns, stand this post and let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.&quot; &quot;You clear?&quot; I am also sure Yale and Haerter then rolled their eyes and said in unison something like: &quot;Yes Sergeant,&quot; with just enough attitude that made the point without saying the words, &quot;No kidding sweetheart, we know what we&#39;re doing.&quot; They then relieved two other Marines on watch and took up their post at the entry control point of Joint Security Station Nasser, in the Sophia section of Ramadi, al Anbar, Iraq.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">A few minutes later a large blue truck turned down the alley way-perhaps 60-70 yards in length-and sped its way through the serpentine of concrete jersey walls. The truck stopped just short of where the two were posted and detonated, killing them both catastrophically. Twenty-four brick masonry houses were damaged or destroyed. A mosque 100 yards away collapsed. The truck&#39;s engine came to rest two hundred yards away knocking most of a house down before it stopped. Our explosive experts reckoned the blast was made of 2,000 pounds of explosives. Two died, and because these two young infantrymen didn&#39;t have it in their DNA to run from danger, they saved 150 of their Iraqi and American brothers-in-arms.</span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">When I read the situation report about the incident a few hours after it happened I called the regimental commander for details as something about this struck me as different. Marines dying or being seriously wounded is commonplace in combat. We expect Marines regardless of rank or MOS to stand their ground and do their duty, and even die in the process, if that is what the mission takes. But this just seemed different. The regimental commander had just returned from the site and he agreed, but reported that there were no American witnesses to the event-just Iraqi police. I figured if there was any chance of finding out what actually happened and then to decorate the two Marines to acknowledge their bravery, I&#39;d have to do it as a combat award that requires two eye-witnesses and we figured the bureaucrats back in Washington would never buy Iraqi statements. If it had any chance at all, it had to come under the signature of a general officer.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">I traveled to Ramadi the next day and spoke individually to a half-dozen Iraqi police all of whom told the same story. The blue truck turned down into the alley and immediately sped up as it made its way through the serpentine. They all said, &quot;We knew immediately what was going on as soon as the two Marines began firing.&quot; The Iraqi police then related that some of them also fired, and then to a man, ran for safety just prior to the explosion. All survived. Many were injured...some seriously. One of the Iraqis elaborated and with tears welling up said, &quot;They&#39;d run like any normal man would to save his life.&quot; &quot;What he didn&#39;t know until then,&quot; he said, &quot;and what he learned that very instant, was that Marines are not normal.&quot; Choking past the emotion he said, &quot;Sir, in the name of God no sane man would have stood there and done what they did.&quot; &quot;No sane man.&quot; &quot;They saved us all.&quot;</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">What we didn&#39;t know at the time, and only learned a couple of days later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras, damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack. It happened exactly as the Iraqis had described it. It took exactly six seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">You can watch the last six seconds of their young lives. Putting myself in their heads I supposed it took about a second for the two Marines to separately come to the same conclusion about what was going on once the truck came into their view at the far end of the alley. Exactly no time to talk it over, or call the sergeant to ask what they should do. Only enough time to take half an instant and think about what the sergeant told them to do only a few minutes before: &quot;...let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.&quot; The two Marines had about five seconds left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">It took maybe another two seconds for them to present their weapons, take aim, and open up. By this time the truck was half-way through the barriers and gaining speed the whole time. Here, the recording shows a number of Iraqi police, some of whom had fired their AKs, now scattering like the normal and rational men they were-some running right past the Marines. They had three seconds left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">For about two seconds more, the recording shows the Marines&#39; weapons firing non-stop...the truck&#39;s windshield exploding into shards of glass as their rounds take it apart and tore in to the body of the son-of-a-bitch who is trying to get past them to kill their brothers-American and Iraqi-bedded down in the barracks totally unaware of the fact that their lives at that moment depended entirely on two Marines standing their ground. If they had been aware, they would have know they were safe...because two Marines stood between them and a crazed suicide bomber. The recording shows the truck careening to a stop immediately in front of the two Marines. In all of the instantaneous violence Yale and Haerter never hesitated. By all reports and by the recording, they never stepped back. They never even started to step aside. They never even shifted their weight. With their feet spread should width apart, they leaned into the danger, firing as fast as they could work their weapons. They had only one second left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">The truck explodes. The camera goes blank. Two young men go to their God. Six seconds. Not enough time to think about their families, their country, their flag, or about their lives or their deaths, but more than enough time for two very brave young men to do their duty...into eternity. That is the kind of people who are on watch all over the world tonight-for you.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">We Marines believe that God gave America the greatest gift he could bestow to man while he lived on this earth-freedom. We also believe he gave us another gift nearly as precious-our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines-to safeguard that gift and guarantee no force on this earth can every steal it away. It has been my distinct honor to have been with you here today. Rest assured our America, this experiment in democracy started over two centuries ago, will forever remain the &quot;land of the free and home of the brave&quot; so long as we never run out of tough young Americans who are willing to look beyond their own self-interest and comfortable lives, and go into the darkest and most dangerous places on earth to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm. God Bless America, and...SEMPER FIDELIS! </span></div>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><strong><em>&#0160;</em></strong></span></p>\r\n<div style=\"overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;\">&#0160;</div>",

Two died, and because these two young infantrymen didn&#39;t have it in their DNA to run from danger, they saved 150 of their Iraqi and American brothers-in-arms.</span></div>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">When I read the situation report about the incident a few hours after it happened I called the regimental commander for details as something about this struck me as different. Marines dying or being seriously wounded is commonplace in combat. We expect Marines regardless of rank or MOS to stand their ground and do their duty, and even die in the process, if that is what the mission takes. But this just seemed different. The regimental commander had just returned from the site and he agreed, but reported that there were no American witnesses to the event-just Iraqi police. I figured if there was any chance of finding out what actually happened and then to decorate the two Marines to acknowledge their bravery, I&#39;d have to do it as a combat award that requires two eye-witnesses and we figured the bureaucrats back in Washington would never buy Iraqi statements. If it had any chance at all, it had to come under the signature of a general officer.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">I traveled to Ramadi the next day and spoke individually to a half-dozen Iraqi police all of whom told the same story. The blue truck turned down into the alley and immediately sped up as it made its way through the serpentine. They all said, &quot;We knew immediately what was going on as soon as the two Marines began firing.&quot; The Iraqi police then related that some of them also fired, and then to a man, ran for safety just prior to the explosion. All survived. Many were injured...some seriously. One of the Iraqis elaborated and with tears welling up said, &quot;They&#39;d run like any normal man would to save his life.&quot; &quot;What he didn&#39;t know until then,&quot; he said, &quot;and what he learned that very instant, was that Marines are not normal.&quot; Choking past the emotion he said, &quot;Sir, in the name of God no sane man would have stood there and done what they did.&quot; &quot;No sane man.&quot; &quot;They saved us all.&quot;</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">What we didn&#39;t know at the time, and only learned a couple of days later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras, damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack. It happened exactly as the Iraqis had described it. It took exactly six seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">You can watch the last six seconds of their young lives. Putting myself in their heads I supposed it took about a second for the two Marines to separately come to the same conclusion about what was going on once the truck came into their view at the far end of the alley. Exactly no time to talk it over, or call the sergeant to ask what they should do. Only enough time to take half an instant and think about what the sergeant told them to do only a few minutes before: &quot;...let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.&quot; The two Marines had about five seconds left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">It took maybe another two seconds for them to present their weapons, take aim, and open up. By this time the truck was half-way through the barriers and gaining speed the whole time. Here, the recording shows a number of Iraqi police, some of whom had fired their AKs, now scattering like the normal and rational men they were-some running right past the Marines. They had three seconds left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">For about two seconds more, the recording shows the Marines&#39; weapons firing non-stop...the truck&#39;s windshield exploding into shards of glass as their rounds take it apart and tore in to the body of the son-of-a-bitch who is trying to get past them to kill their brothers-American and Iraqi-bedded down in the barracks totally unaware of the fact that their lives at that moment depended entirely on two Marines standing their ground. If they had been aware, they would have know they were safe...because two Marines stood between them and a crazed suicide bomber. The recording shows the truck careening to a stop immediately in front of the two Marines. In all of the instantaneous violence Yale and Haerter never hesitated. By all reports and by the recording, they never stepped back. They never even started to step aside. They never even shifted their weight. With their feet spread should width apart, they leaned into the danger, firing as fast as they could work their weapons. They had only one second left to live.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">The truck explodes. The camera goes blank. Two young men go to their God. Six seconds. Not enough time to think about their families, their country, their flag, or about their lives or their deaths, but more than enough time for two very brave young men to do their duty...into eternity. That is the kind of people who are on watch all over the world tonight-for you.</span></div>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<div><span style=\"font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;\">We Marines believe that God gave America the greatest gift he could bestow to man while he lived on this earth-freedom. We also believe he gave us another gift nearly as precious-our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines-to safeguard that gift and guarantee no force on this earth can every steal it away. It has been my distinct honor to have been with you here today. Rest assured our America, this experiment in democracy started over two centuries ago, will forever remain the &quot;land of the free and home of the brave&quot; so long as we never run out of tough young Americans who are willing to look beyond their own self-interest and comfortable lives, and go into the darkest and most dangerous places on earth to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm. God Bless America, and...SEMPER FIDELIS! </span></div>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><strong><em>&#0160;</em></strong></span></p>\r\n<div style=\"overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;\">&#0160;</div>",

It is a very empowering card that comes with promise of ‘we will endure’.</p>\r\n<p>In My Rohrig deck it still has the lion but the female figure is in the throes of passion while the beast sits tamed at her feet. In some decks this is called ‘Lust’ or ‘desire’. So you can see that there can be a very sexual element to the card. But what does it mean in practical terms? This depends on the other cards surrounding it in the spread obviously but as a one off it can be positive and sometimes highlight something negative that needs controlled.</p>\r\n<p>Ina straightforward way it tells us that this week will bring situations where we will need to be strong and contained.

And that passion could be varied e.g. sexual, taking risks or chocolate! Be firm and control urges this week and the end result will be positive for you! Maybe not yet, but in a wee while. Be wary of sexual attraction or acting out with your normal patterns due to passion or romance. Curb silly desires and take a longer term outlook.

We don’t need to draw strength from others (although ask if you feel the need). Everything you need is within yourself.

Strength</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;I shouldn’t watch the news these days. Especially after I have had a few drinks. There is so much about war and torment and abuse and I sometimes think this world’s a bad place. Today, a British journalist was blown up in Syria. She should have got out but she chose to stay and report so that we would know about the atrocities happening in that part of the world. It seems she had been as good as warned that the bad guys were aiming missiles at the ramshackle house, the place from where the stories were reported to the rest of the world. There was nowhere else for them to go so they hung on in there, sending more and more updates but their time was running out. I think a French photographer was killed too and others badly injured. She had done her job all over the world, reporting from war zones and dangerous places for over 20 years, just because she believed in what she was doing. How stunning is that? I don’t know if I have ever believed in a cause enough that I would risk my life for it. I would for my children, but anyone would do that. Well, this journalist looked into the jaws of danger every day and never flinched in her belief that the world needed to know what was being done to those more unfortunate than ourselves. She must have known that the longer she did it, the shorter her odds of being safe were, but she didn’t give up. How strong must a person be to put personal safety below the need for freedom of speech and communication?</p>\r\n<p>I admire strength in others probably because I have been so weak, at times, myself. It’s hard not to be inspired by heroic stories and we all like a ‘Susan Boyle’ tale of making it against the odds. When you hear of someone who was bullied for being a bit slow or for being different and then winning at something like Britain’s Got Talent, its brilliant! That look of disbelief on Simon Cowell’s face when a wee hairy, fat women from Fife opened her mouth and the voice of an angel came out was one of my favourite moments on TV. What a belter! Susan Boyle never gave up and now she has shown us all that anyone who has a belief in their talent can truly conquer the world.</p>\r\n<p>This whisky makes me maudlin, Claire. Maybe you can delete this later? I don’t want Aileen to know I watch Britain’s Got Talent. She’d start talking about ‘opiates for the masses’ and all that posh stuff.</p>\r\n<p>Everyone has a battle to fight though, and not always in public. Did I tell you about my son Drew? He was my boy and my hero. We didn’t see eye to eye after I did the dirty on his mum. He told me I wasn’t his dad and that he was disgusted at me and would never forgive me. He was a good boy and looked after his mum and my wee Kylie after I was sent packing. He worked hard at school and he never needed to be told right from wrong: he just knew. Stella used to tell me about him occasionally if we bumped into one another in the street. She was delighted the way he was growing up and how he was working hard to learn to be a mechanic. After Stella died in 2004 Drew lost the plot. He joined the army and was sent to Afghanistan. He was a casualty of war. One of many who were all fighting for a belief or for a wage packet or maybe even just for a sense of belonging. I never knew what made him sign up. He told Kylie that he would be able to get his mechanic’s qualification quicker but all that happened was he was handed a gun and told to do our government’s dirty work. I am not bitter, just sad. I think most of all I am proud… not that he was in the army… but of the way he chose to die.</p>\r\n<p>I know he said that I wasn’t his Dad anymore but, to my surprise, he made me his next of kin in case anything happened to him. I think he maybe did it in some way to say if anything happened to him, he forgave me for my sins. But maybe he knew that if it wasn’t me then it would be his darling Kylie and he loved her too much to give her the burden of the news of his death.</p>\r\n<p>The 8<sup>th</sup> of the 8<sup>th</sup>, 2008… a lucky date of you are Chinese but not if you are a boy from Glasgow caught up in an ambush in the wilds of a country where most ordinary Glasgow folk don’t even know what the war is about. When the official came to my door the next day, completely immaculate in his army uniform, I knew right away what had happened and so to be honest, did the rest of street. Bad news travels faster than good news here.</p>\r\n<p>It seems that Drew was on some mission to make an area safe for aid, medical supplies and food to be flown in. He was in an armoured car that was blown into the air by a road mine. When he came to, he saw that insurgents were approaching and that&#0160; his friend and driver, Jimmy Delaney, was trapped under the remains of the car. According to Jimmy he told Drew to run for the car behind and get the hell out of there and leave him, but Drew started firing on the rebels and took most of them out. He then struggled and with all his energy and strength, pulled Jimmy from under the car. Jimmy didn’t realise it at the time but his leg was missing below the knee. He said he didn’t feel any pain. Drew fired off a few more rounds and then carried Jimmy on his back to the other car which had taken a hit but its engine was purring away even though the driver was very dead. More bullets were fired but Drew got Jimmy in the car and drove off at speed to the camp a few miles away. All the way Drew talked to Jimmy about how he was lucky as he would be going home to see his wife and kid while he would just have to go back out and kick a few more Al Qaeda asses. All this time, Drew must have known that he had taken a bullet to his stomach. He was bleeding heavily and when Jimmy was safe in the hands of the medics, he collapsed. His last word was ‘Mum’.</p>\r\n<p>I don’t know why I am telling you this, Claire. I just need you to know that my son was a hero who put himself in danger’s way to rescue his friend. He put friendship and honour above saving his own skin. His strength and determination earned him a posthumous medal for bravery. I keep it on the table beside my bed and it fills me with sadness and pride. Kylie’s son, Andrew, can have it when I am gone.</p>\r\n<p>I am glad Stella died before Drew and didn’t have to suffer the sorrow of losing a child. The fact that he said her name before he died gives me comfort. That one word ‘Mum’ makes&#0160; me&#0160; believe that she came to collect him as he died and that they are both together now somewhere where there is no need to keep fighting.</p>\r\n<p>I know Drew got his bravery and strength from his mum, not me. She had shown him how to fight a good fight, even if it resulted in you losing the battle. Her fight was with that disease that eats away at you and makes a mockery of any faith that tells you that if you are a good person nothing bad will happen to you. My Stella was the best: an honest, compassionate person who gave far more than she ever took. God knows she took enough nonsense from me before she gave up on me. You know, Claire, I don’t think she ever really gave up on me completely. When she got ill I had started to paint and draw and had even been allowed back to Barlinnie to teach prisoners how to appreciate art. I was cleaning up my act and was making sure that I not only stayed on the right side of the law, but that I was being nicer to people, including myself. She liked the fact that I was behaving and her smile and praise kept me going when I felt the depression raising its head. I like to think that she still loved me: I will love her forever. I know that.</p>\r\n<p>Stella was pretty and a wee bit vain. Kylie told me recently that when her mum’s hair started to fall out with the chemo,&#0160; she asked her customers in the salon to sponsor her to have it all shaved off. Two of the staff joined in and had their hair shaved off too in support and they raised nearly £1,000 for breast cancer charity. Stella fought for nearly two years before even she had to admit defeat. She had fought the beast inside her for as long as she could. In the end, it was pneumonia that killed her because her immune system was so low. She left behind a daughter who couldn’t function and a son who went off to war. She also left me behind, an old fool who had never been strong enough to recognise how precious she had been until it was too late.</p>\r\n<p>It’s cold tonight, Claire. February in a Scotland where fuel poverty is killing old folk and weans. It’s like the Seventies again... doom and gloom. I have only known you a few months darlin, but I think I am getting used to you and am pleased I agreed to do this for the university. Telling stories is like opening wounds though, but it is making me stronger. Thank you.</p>",

Strength</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;I shouldn’t watch the news these days. Especially after I have had a few drinks. There is so much about war and torment and abuse and I sometimes think this world’s a bad place. Today, a British journalist was blown up in Syria. She should have got out but she chose to stay and report so that we would know about the atrocities happening in that part of the world. It seems she had been as good as warned that the bad guys were aiming missiles at the ramshackle house, the place from where the stories were reported to the rest of the world. There was nowhere else for them to go so they hung on in there, sending more and more updates but their time was running out. I think a French photographer was killed too and others badly injured. She had done her job all over the world, reporting from war zones and dangerous places for over 20 years, just because she believed in what she was doing. How stunning is that? I don’t know if I have ever believed in a cause enough that I would risk my life for it. I would for my children, but anyone would do that. Well, this journalist looked into the jaws of danger every day and never flinched in her belief that the world needed to know what was being done to those more unfortunate than ourselves. She must have known that the longer she did it, the shorter her odds of being safe were, but she didn’t give up. How strong must a person be to put personal safety below the need for freedom of speech and communication?</p>\r\n<p>I admire strength in others probably because I have been so weak, at times, myself. It’s hard not to be inspired by heroic stories and we all like a ‘Susan Boyle’ tale of making it against the odds. When you hear of someone who was bullied for being a bit slow or for being different and then winning at something like Britain’s Got Talent, its brilliant! That look of disbelief on Simon Cowell’s face when a wee hairy, fat women from Fife opened her mouth and the voice of an angel came out was one of my favourite moments on TV. What a belter! Susan Boyle never gave up and now she has shown us all that anyone who has a belief in their talent can truly conquer the world.</p>\r\n<p>This whisky makes me maudlin, Claire. Maybe you can delete this later? I don’t want Aileen to know I watch Britain’s Got Talent. She’d start talking about ‘opiates for the masses’ and all that posh stuff.</p>\r\n<p>Everyone has a battle to fight though, and not always in public. Did I tell you about my son Drew? He was my boy and my hero. We didn’t see eye to eye after I did the dirty on his mum. He told me I wasn’t his dad and that he was disgusted at me and would never forgive me. He was a good boy and looked after his mum and my wee Kylie after I was sent packing. He worked hard at school and he never needed to be told right from wrong: he just knew. Stella used to tell me about him occasionally if we bumped into one another in the street. She was delighted the way he was growing up and how he was working hard to learn to be a mechanic. After Stella died in 2004 Drew lost the plot. He joined the army and was sent to Afghanistan. He was a casualty of war. One of many who were all fighting for a belief or for a wage packet or maybe even just for a sense of belonging. I never knew what made him sign up. He told Kylie that he would be able to get his mechanic’s qualification quicker but all that happened was he was handed a gun and told to do our government’s dirty work. I am not bitter, just sad. I think most of all I am proud… not that he was in the army… but of the way he chose to die.</p>\r\n<p>I know he said that I wasn’t his Dad anymore but, to my surprise, he made me his next of kin in case anything happened to him. I think he maybe did it in some way to say if anything happened to him, he forgave me for my sins. But maybe he knew that if it wasn’t me then it would be his darling Kylie and he loved her too much to give her the burden of the news of his death.</p>\r\n<p>The 8<sup>th</sup> of the 8<sup>th</sup>, 2008… a lucky date of you are Chinese but not if you are a boy from Glasgow caught up in an ambush in the wilds of a country where most ordinary Glasgow folk don’t even know what the war is about. When the official came to my door the next day, completely immaculate in his army uniform, I knew right away what had happened and so to be honest, did the rest of street. Bad news travels faster than good news here.</p>\r\n<p>It seems that Drew was on some mission to make an area safe for aid, medical supplies and food to be flown in. He was in an armoured car that was blown into the air by a road mine. When he came to, he saw that insurgents were approaching and that&#0160; his friend and driver, Jimmy Delaney, was trapped under the remains of the car. According to Jimmy he told Drew to run for the car behind and get the hell out of there and leave him, but Drew started firing on the rebels and took most of them out. He then struggled and with all his energy and strength, pulled Jimmy from under the car. Jimmy didn’t realise it at the time but his leg was missing below the knee. He said he didn’t feel any pain. Drew fired off a few more rounds and then carried Jimmy on his back to the other car which had taken a hit but its engine was purring away even though the driver was very dead. More bullets were fired but Drew got Jimmy in the car and drove off at speed to the camp a few miles away. All the way Drew talked to Jimmy about how he was lucky as he would be going home to see his wife and kid while he would just have to go back out and kick a few more Al Qaeda asses. All this time, Drew must have known that he had taken a bullet to his stomach. He was bleeding heavily and when Jimmy was safe in the hands of the medics, he collapsed. His last word was ‘Mum’.</p>\r\n<p>I don’t know why I am telling you this, Claire. I just need you to know that my son was a hero who put himself in danger’s way to rescue his friend. He put friendship and honour above saving his own skin. His strength and determination earned him a posthumous medal for bravery. I keep it on the table beside my bed and it fills me with sadness and pride. Kylie’s son, Andrew, can have it when I am gone.</p>\r\n<p>I am glad Stella died before Drew and didn’t have to suffer the sorrow of losing a child. The fact that he said her name before he died gives me comfort. That one word ‘Mum’ makes&#0160; me&#0160; believe that she came to collect him as he died and that they are both together now somewhere where there is no need to keep fighting.</p>\r\n<p>I know Drew got his bravery and strength from his mum, not me.

There’s Don standing before the mighty Pacific Ocean, a smile on his face, possibly devilish, possibly just a smile. Then there’s Don in a group of a dozen men and women in lotus position receiving the blessings of the morning sunlight and chanting Om. The trinity of images is completed with what is arguably the greatest TV commercial of all time: a chorus of multinational kids singing “I’d like to teach the world to sing / in prefect harmony” and “I’d like to give the world a Coke” and then the tag line, “It’s the real thing!” The commercial made its TV debut in 1971.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; The ambiguity of the ending is perfect for our hero, who may, reverting to his character as we’ve come to know it, return to Madison Ave. armed with a new vernacular derived from his experience at Esalen in Big Sur, or wherever Don and Anna Draper’s niece Stephanie have gone for spiritual healing and group therapy. On this view, Don gets to work on the Coke account after all and this is what he comes up with – a good idea made great by the composer and writer of the jingle. (As it happens, McCann Erickson produced the commercial.)</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; But it is also possible, as no causality is given, that doing such work for Coca-Cola is precisely what our rootless wanderer has renounced in his journey westward – first to Racine (which means “root” in French), Wisconsin, and then to various locales in the Midwest and finally to California, up the coast from LA -- as he discards his property, his clothes, his car, and reaches the ideal nothingness of Existentialism or <em>King Lear </em>from the Fool’s point of view.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Is Om the answer? In that case, as Gertrude Stein would say, what is the question?</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; I have to interrupt myself. When the commercial came out I was living in Paris. At the time there were commercials before the feature film in Paris movie theaters, and it is was in its French translation, in a Left Bank theater, that I first heard the Coke jingle – “Soif d’aujourd’hui” (“Thirst today” or “Today’s Thirst”) to the tune of “it’s the real thing.” That same year I read Henry James’s story “The Real Thing.” I had the idea of writing a piece comparing the two things, the Coke “real thing” commercial and the James story. I still think it’s a good idea, though I never brought it to fruition.</p>\r\n<p><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"259\" marginheight=\"0\" marginwidth=\"0\" scrolling=\"no\" src=\"http://player.ina.fr/player/embed/PUB3214574035/1/1b0bd203fbcd702f9bc9b10ac3d0fc21/460/259\" width=\"460\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>&#0160;</strong></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; It was, by the way, a Coke machine that Don fixed in last week’s episode, showing off his mechanical prowess.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; A second digression but quicker: how well do I recall the obnoxious encounter groups of the period! Phony, embarrassing, fascistic in their drive toward conformity, power struggles concealed beneath a veneer of gentleness and concern, nasty revelations (“I kidnapped my girlfriends son and drove past state boundaries”) papered over and always concluding with a plea masked as a query: “Has anyone’s opinion of me gone down?” Ugh.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;Back to the finale. I’m glad that happy endings were arranged for some of our favorite folk – Joan, who is sure to make a huge success of her production company that was born in her crowded one-bedroom; Roger, who marries Marie, Megan’s indomitable mother, and who, despite his native xenophobia, orders lobster and champagne in French and jokes that Marie is <em>his</em> Mama; Pete and Trudy, wowed by their new status as Kansas plutocrats as they step into the company plane; &#0160;and Peg, who gets not just one proposal but two in the course of the episode.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; First it is Joan who bends Peggy’s ear with a career-changing offer: a partnership in Harris-Olson, the production company Joan is launching. This must have come as Mannah to the Israelites in the desert who envisioned a sequel to <em>Mad Men</em> focusing on Peggy and Joan in a decade during which the feminist rebellion won its victory.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;But Peggy says no to Joan because of an argument made by Stan, the art director who seemed obnoxious when he joined cast and crew but has developed character and complexity over the years. The argument – in the second sense – spurs Stan to declare his love, and come to think of it, they <em>have </em>spent a lot of intimate time together, though mainly on the phone, so why not? Peggy declares right back and it seems a better match for our gal than anyone since Abe before he grew hirsute and self-important and she bought that awful Upper West Side brownstone, which would doubtlessly be worth a large fortune today.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;In the very first episode of <em>Mad Men</em>, some of the fellows are going drinking and celebrating with Pete, who is about to get hitched. The well-wishers are Harry Crane, Ken Cosgrove, Paul (the pipe-smoking Princetonian whose lack of talent and charm lead him into the clutches of Hare Krishna), and Sal (the closeted art director who is punished for his homosexuality). This time around it’s a valedictory drink, but only Harry is left of the old guard, and Peggy turns them down when they ask her to join them.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; It is not easy to forecast what will happen in the next five to ten years with Peggy, Joan, Pete, and Roger. There are no guarantees that the happy endings just announced will last even a year. As for Betty, doomed though she may be to an early demise, serene though she may be, she remains who she is, smoking cigarettes at the kitchen table.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;But with Don the task of making a forecast is impossible. Don is unpredictable by nature, an enigmatic stranger in the cloak and fedora of ordinary if sophisticated urban life. Don’s destiny remains unfixed, though it does seem as though he has come closest to zero in California, at Esalen or its facsimile, and therefore, by this reasoning, he might just be capable of totally revolutionizing his life.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;There was a season that began with Don reading <em>The Inferno </em>(John Ciardi’s translation). He has gone to hell and come back many times. There was the time when he lived alone, got drunk nightly, fucked his secretary. There was the time when he fucked his secretary, married her, and cheated on her with the woman who lives downstairs, whose husband is also his friend. And now this. . .two divorces down . . . the merger with McCann. . .the absence of a love life. . . the conviction that he has made a mess of the opportunity he had seized when the explosion went off in Korea.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;At Esalen Don reaches the state of aloneness that may precede any life change. Don is deserted and rejected by his faux-niece, Stephanie, who brought him there – and who points out that he is fooling himself if he thinks that she is “family.” There is no exit for him – no car, no way of getting out. He has felt the sting of rejection, or of self-imposed anomie (as the sociologists used to say). He has children but they will not be in his custody. He has had two wives but one is dying and the other may be marvelous but she’s not right for our boy, either because of the age difference between them or because he expected their boss-secretary relationship to persist in their marriage.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; What we know about Don is that he is handy, good to have in an emergency, favored by fortune in looks, capable of holding his liquor, and liable to act and react to events in thoroughly unpredictable ways. He doesn’t know who he is, but that s because he is a product of his own invention. Like Gatsby he sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. Like William Holden in <em>The Bridge on the River Kwai</em>, he has traded places with an officer during a battle scene – an act of impersonation that is profoundly interesting beyond its intense dramatic function.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; What we didn’t know before <em>Mad Men</em> is that the existential hero existed not only in army jeeps on foreign soil or Montparnasse cafes but in suites of midtown Manhattan offices where, in some cases, as much intelligence went into the making of a TV commercial as into a song or a poem.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; I’ll miss him, I’ll miss the show, and I’ll miss the chance to trade insights and observations with you, Amy.

I am sad the show&#39;s over, and a bit forlorn our collaboration has therefore run its course. I&#39;m thankful Matt Weiner took the helm at the end and was solo writer/director for his last episode. That felt exactly right, and I think all in all, he acquitted himself excellently. His 7-year novel ended with momentous events/peak emotional moments in the lives of his characters, yet events that, as you observed, contain rich ambiguities. Decisive plot developments aplenty take place, which you enumerate, yet all story lines are left wide open, in great or small ways.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Anything could happen:</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c-pi\"><img alt=\"Stanpeggy\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stanpeggy\" /></a><br />--to Peggy and Stan&#39;s new love relationship (and what of Stan&#39;s cute, redheaded, ultra&#0160;cool, joint puffing, nude modeling nurse wife? was she kidnapped by aliens? accidentally vaporized by an experiment in nuclear medicine at the hospital where she was&#0160; employed? did she run off with one of the doctors on M*A*S*H? )</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to the freshly, tenuously reunited Pete and Trudy (Trudy looking like Jackie O. with&#0160;long hair, in her pink Chanel suit and hat in the last shot we see of her...)</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to Don, who has broken down completely, and then arisen into a kind of enlightenment, or at least a surcease of pain, to the tune of finger cymbals</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to Joan who has realized that <em>she loves working</em>, and any man who can&#39;t respect that&#0160;can&#39;t really love her.

Never have been. (Not that I&#39;m proud of being so outside the culture. I know it&#39;s shameful.) So the Mad Men devotion was a real aberration for me. I started watching it because of you, David. During the first season, when you told me how remarkable you felt it was, how sharp you thought the writing, and that there was a character reading Frank O&#39;Hara&#39;s <em>Lunch Poems </em>in a bar (did I get that right?) I watched once out of curiosity and was hooked. So I&#39;m not a television expert, but for me this show was as perfectly cast and exquisitely acted as anything I&#39;ve ever seen in that medium.</p>\r\n<p>Indelible Moments from this last installment:</p>\r\n<p>1. The depiction of how awful encounter groups were in the 60s and 70s! Such a toxic mix of dime store psychology recklessly and blindly applied, mob dynamics, faux innocence, sexual desperation, mistaking cruelty for honesty, and encouraging dangerous levels of vulnerability in a situation that portrayed itself as safe and was actually anything but. I’m old enough and was sufficiently curious and naive to have participated in some of these nasty gatherings when a teen, and I must say Matt Weiner and co. captured it all perfectly: the crying, the hugging, the brain-frying silences, the predators posing as facilitators, the misplaced trust, the narcissism parading as self-exploration or team spirit, the perversity, the terror, the pretend empathy, the outrageousness, the inadvertent comedy. I squirmed watching those passages in the show, which were so spot on: when the hostile old lady shoves Don; when the depressed, nebbishy guy says, in trying to describe his agonizing feelings of alienation, “I had a dream I was on a shelf in the refrigerator,” which is at once pathetic and hilarious; when hippie-ish, necklace wearing, facilitators keep intoning, ad nauseum, in fake-serene voices “how did that make you <em>feel</em>?”</p>\r\n<p>2. Sally and Bobby&#39;s conversation about their mother&#39;s impending death, containing just the right notes of age appropriateness, exigency and forced sudden maturity. At the end of the scene, Sally gives her younger brother a cooking lesson, because he&#39;s going to need to learn.</p>\r\n<p>3. &#0160;The phone conversation between Sally and Don in which Sally tells Don Betty is dying. How Sally takes charge, not with hostility, but pure urgency.</p>\r\n<p>4. The phone conversation between Peggy and Don when Don calls from “Esalen.” I didn&#39;t love all the writing in this scene, but the acting was searing.</p>\r\n<p>5. I loved that the last word of the show was “Om.” Beautiful. Perfect. And exactly what does Om mean? Like zillions of people, I have been repeating that round sound before and after yoga classes for years now, without ever inquiring into its meaning very deeply. The almighty, all knowing Wikipedia declares “Om,” in a lovely bit of slant rhyme, “a mystic syllable.”</p>\r\n<p>Valerie Reiss, in the <em>Huffpost</em> blog, is a little more voluble and enlightening:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p><em>The sound appears to have first cropped up in the <em>Upanishads</em>, a collection of sacred texts that inform Hinduism. The <em>Mandukya Upanishad</em>, which is entirely devoted to om, begins like this: &quot;Om is the imperishable word. Om is the universe, and this is the exposition of om. The past, the present, and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be is om. Likewise, all else that may exist beyond the bounds of time, that too is om.&quot;</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Good luck and Godspeed to all the brilliant actors who made Mad Men what it was. I look forward to seeing your future endeavors. All hail Matt Weiner, whose brainchild gave so many such pleasure, even an avowed anti-TV curmudgeon like yours truly. Can’t wait for his next project. Maybe he should consider a “dramedy” set in a creative writing department of an American University, possibly hiring a couple of poets as high paid consultants? David, does that sound good to you?</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">Love,</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">Amy</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c-pi\"><img alt=\"Joan\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Joan\" /></a></p>",

We launched this blog in January, 2008, to create a place where we and friends can exchange, discuss, and argue about poems and poetry.

Then we flung the doors open and invited others to join in.  And we decided that contributors to the blog need not be poets as long as they share a love of good writing and poetry. The only things we ask our regular and guest bloggers to avoid are personal attacks. You'll find enough of that stuff elsewhere.  We celebrate freedom of expression.

There’s Don standing before the mighty Pacific Ocean, a smile on his face, possibly devilish, possibly just a smile. Then there’s Don in a group of a dozen men and women in lotus position receiving the blessings of the morning sunlight and chanting Om. The trinity of images is completed with what is arguably the greatest TV commercial of all time: a chorus of multinational kids singing “I’d like to teach the world to sing / in prefect harmony” and “I’d like to give the world a Coke” and then the tag line, “It’s the real thing!” The commercial made its TV debut in 1971.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; The ambiguity of the ending is perfect for our hero, who may, reverting to his character as we’ve come to know it, return to Madison Ave. armed with a new vernacular derived from his experience at Esalen in Big Sur, or wherever Don and Anna Draper’s niece Stephanie have gone for spiritual healing and group therapy. On this view, Don gets to work on the Coke account after all and this is what he comes up with – a good idea made great by the composer and writer of the jingle. (As it happens, McCann Erickson produced the commercial.)</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; But it is also possible, as no causality is given, that doing such work for Coca-Cola is precisely what our rootless wanderer has renounced in his journey westward – first to Racine (which means “root” in French), Wisconsin, and then to various locales in the Midwest and finally to California, up the coast from LA -- as he discards his property, his clothes, his car, and reaches the ideal nothingness of Existentialism or <em>King Lear </em>from the Fool’s point of view.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Is Om the answer? In that case, as Gertrude Stein would say, what is the question?</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; I have to interrupt myself. When the commercial came out I was living in Paris. At the time there were commercials before the feature film in Paris movie theaters, and it is was in its French translation, in a Left Bank theater, that I first heard the Coke jingle – “Soif d’aujourd’hui” (“Thirst today” or “Today’s Thirst”) to the tune of “it’s the real thing.” That same year I read Henry James’s story “The Real Thing.” I had the idea of writing a piece comparing the two things, the Coke “real thing” commercial and the James story. I still think it’s a good idea, though I never brought it to fruition.</p>\r\n<p><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"259\" marginheight=\"0\" marginwidth=\"0\" scrolling=\"no\" src=\"http://player.ina.fr/player/embed/PUB3214574035/1/1b0bd203fbcd702f9bc9b10ac3d0fc21/460/259\" width=\"460\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>&#0160;</strong></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; It was, by the way, a Coke machine that Don fixed in last week’s episode, showing off his mechanical prowess.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; A second digression but quicker: how well do I recall the obnoxious encounter groups of the period! Phony, embarrassing, fascistic in their drive toward conformity, power struggles concealed beneath a veneer of gentleness and concern, nasty revelations (“I kidnapped my girlfriends son and drove past state boundaries”) papered over and always concluding with a plea masked as a query: “Has anyone’s opinion of me gone down?” Ugh.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;Back to the finale. I’m glad that happy endings were arranged for some of our favorite folk – Joan, who is sure to make a huge success of her production company that was born in her crowded one-bedroom; Roger, who marries Marie, Megan’s indomitable mother, and who, despite his native xenophobia, orders lobster and champagne in French and jokes that Marie is <em>his</em> Mama; Pete and Trudy, wowed by their new status as Kansas plutocrats as they step into the company plane; &#0160;and Peg, who gets not just one proposal but two in the course of the episode.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; First it is Joan who bends Peggy’s ear with a career-changing offer: a partnership in Harris-Olson, the production company Joan is launching. This must have come as Mannah to the Israelites in the desert who envisioned a sequel to <em>Mad Men</em> focusing on Peggy and Joan in a decade during which the feminist rebellion won its victory.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;But Peggy says no to Joan because of an argument made by Stan, the art director who seemed obnoxious when he joined cast and crew but has developed character and complexity over the years. The argument – in the second sense – spurs Stan to declare his love, and come to think of it, they <em>have </em>spent a lot of intimate time together, though mainly on the phone, so why not? Peggy declares right back and it seems a better match for our gal than anyone since Abe before he grew hirsute and self-important and she bought that awful Upper West Side brownstone, which would doubtlessly be worth a large fortune today.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;In the very first episode of <em>Mad Men</em>, some of the fellows are going drinking and celebrating with Pete, who is about to get hitched. The well-wishers are Harry Crane, Ken Cosgrove, Paul (the pipe-smoking Princetonian whose lack of talent and charm lead him into the clutches of Hare Krishna), and Sal (the closeted art director who is punished for his homosexuality). This time around it’s a valedictory drink, but only Harry is left of the old guard, and Peggy turns them down when they ask her to join them.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; It is not easy to forecast what will happen in the next five to ten years with Peggy, Joan, Pete, and Roger. There are no guarantees that the happy endings just announced will last even a year. As for Betty, doomed though she may be to an early demise, serene though she may be, she remains who she is, smoking cigarettes at the kitchen table.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;But with Don the task of making a forecast is impossible. Don is unpredictable by nature, an enigmatic stranger in the cloak and fedora of ordinary if sophisticated urban life. Don’s destiny remains unfixed, though it does seem as though he has come closest to zero in California, at Esalen or its facsimile, and therefore, by this reasoning, he might just be capable of totally revolutionizing his life.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;There was a season that began with Don reading <em>The Inferno </em>(John Ciardi’s translation). He has gone to hell and come back many times. There was the time when he lived alone, got drunk nightly, fucked his secretary. There was the time when he fucked his secretary, married her, and cheated on her with the woman who lives downstairs, whose husband is also his friend. And now this. . .two divorces down . . . the merger with McCann. . .the absence of a love life. . . the conviction that he has made a mess of the opportunity he had seized when the explosion went off in Korea.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;At Esalen Don reaches the state of aloneness that may precede any life change. Don is deserted and rejected by his faux-niece, Stephanie, who brought him there – and who points out that he is fooling himself if he thinks that she is “family.” There is no exit for him – no car, no way of getting out. He has felt the sting of rejection, or of self-imposed anomie (as the sociologists used to say). He has children but they will not be in his custody. He has had two wives but one is dying and the other may be marvelous but she’s not right for our boy, either because of the age difference between them or because he expected their boss-secretary relationship to persist in their marriage.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; What we know about Don is that he is handy, good to have in an emergency, favored by fortune in looks, capable of holding his liquor, and liable to act and react to events in thoroughly unpredictable ways. He doesn’t know who he is, but that s because he is a product of his own invention. Like Gatsby he sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. Like William Holden in <em>The Bridge on the River Kwai</em>, he has traded places with an officer during a battle scene – an act of impersonation that is profoundly interesting beyond its intense dramatic function.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; What we didn’t know before <em>Mad Men</em> is that the existential hero existed not only in army jeeps on foreign soil or Montparnasse cafes but in suites of midtown Manhattan offices where, in some cases, as much intelligence went into the making of a TV commercial as into a song or a poem.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; I’ll miss him, I’ll miss the show, and I’ll miss the chance to trade insights and observations with you, Amy. I can’t wait to read what you made of episode the last!</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Love, your buddy in Madness, &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; David&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Dear David,</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Oh, the moment has come. I am sad the show&#39;s over, and a bit forlorn our collaboration has therefore run its course. I&#39;m thankful Matt Weiner took the helm at the end and was solo writer/director for his last episode. That felt exactly right, and I think all in all, he acquitted himself excellently. His 7-year novel ended with momentous events/peak emotional moments in the lives of his characters, yet events that, as you observed, contain rich ambiguities. Decisive plot developments aplenty take place, which you enumerate, yet all story lines are left wide open, in great or small ways.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Anything could happen:</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c-pi\"><img alt=\"Stanpeggy\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d11923fa970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stanpeggy\" /></a><br />--to Peggy and Stan&#39;s new love relationship (and what of Stan&#39;s cute, redheaded, ultra&#0160;cool, joint puffing, nude modeling nurse wife? was she kidnapped by aliens? accidentally vaporized by an experiment in nuclear medicine at the hospital where she was&#0160; employed? did she run off with one of the doctors on M*A*S*H? )</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to the freshly, tenuously reunited Pete and Trudy (Trudy looking like Jackie O. with&#0160;long hair, in her pink Chanel suit and hat in the last shot we see of her...)</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to Don, who has broken down completely, and then arisen into a kind of enlightenment, or at least a surcease of pain, to the tune of finger cymbals</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">--to Joan who has realized that <em>she loves working</em>, and any man who can&#39;t respect that&#0160;can&#39;t really love her.

Never have been. (Not that I&#39;m proud of being so outside the culture. I know it&#39;s shameful.) So the Mad Men devotion was a real aberration for me. I started watching it because of you, David. During the first season, when you told me how remarkable you felt it was, how sharp you thought the writing, and that there was a character reading Frank O&#39;Hara&#39;s <em>Lunch Poems </em>in a bar (did I get that right?) I watched once out of curiosity and was hooked. So I&#39;m not a television expert, but for me this show was as perfectly cast and exquisitely acted as anything I&#39;ve ever seen in that medium.</p>\r\n<p>Indelible Moments from this last installment:</p>\r\n<p>1. The depiction of how awful encounter groups were in the 60s and 70s! Such a toxic mix of dime store psychology recklessly and blindly applied, mob dynamics, faux innocence, sexual desperation, mistaking cruelty for honesty, and encouraging dangerous levels of vulnerability in a situation that portrayed itself as safe and was actually anything but. I’m old enough and was sufficiently curious and naive to have participated in some of these nasty gatherings when a teen, and I must say Matt Weiner and co. captured it all perfectly: the crying, the hugging, the brain-frying silences, the predators posing as facilitators, the misplaced trust, the narcissism parading as self-exploration or team spirit, the perversity, the terror, the pretend empathy, the outrageousness, the inadvertent comedy. I squirmed watching those passages in the show, which were so spot on: when the hostile old lady shoves Don; when the depressed, nebbishy guy says, in trying to describe his agonizing feelings of alienation, “I had a dream I was on a shelf in the refrigerator,” which is at once pathetic and hilarious; when hippie-ish, necklace wearing, facilitators keep intoning, ad nauseum, in fake-serene voices “how did that make you <em>feel</em>?”</p>\r\n<p>2. Sally and Bobby&#39;s conversation about their mother&#39;s impending death, containing just the right notes of age appropriateness, exigency and forced sudden maturity. At the end of the scene, Sally gives her younger brother a cooking lesson, because he&#39;s going to need to learn.</p>\r\n<p>3. &#0160;The phone conversation between Sally and Don in which Sally tells Don Betty is dying. How Sally takes charge, not with hostility, but pure urgency.</p>\r\n<p>4. The phone conversation between Peggy and Don when Don calls from “Esalen.” I didn&#39;t love all the writing in this scene, but the acting was searing.</p>\r\n<p>5. I loved that the last word of the show was “Om.” Beautiful. Perfect. And exactly what does Om mean? Like zillions of people, I have been repeating that round sound before and after yoga classes for years now, without ever inquiring into its meaning very deeply. The almighty, all knowing Wikipedia declares “Om,” in a lovely bit of slant rhyme, “a mystic syllable.”</p>\r\n<p>Valerie Reiss, in the <em>Huffpost</em> blog, is a little more voluble and enlightening:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p><em>The sound appears to have first cropped up in the <em>Upanishads</em>, a collection of sacred texts that inform Hinduism. The <em>Mandukya Upanishad</em>, which is entirely devoted to om, begins like this: &quot;Om is the imperishable word. Om is the universe, and this is the exposition of om. The past, the present, and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be is om. Likewise, all else that may exist beyond the bounds of time, that too is om.&quot;</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Good luck and Godspeed to all the brilliant actors who made Mad Men what it was. I look forward to seeing your future endeavors. All hail Matt Weiner, whose brainchild gave so many such pleasure, even an avowed anti-TV curmudgeon like yours truly. Can’t wait for his next project. Maybe he should consider a “dramedy” set in a creative writing department of an American University, possibly hiring a couple of poets as high paid consultants? David, does that sound good to you?</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">Love,</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">Amy</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c-pi\"><img alt=\"Joan\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/.a/6a00e54fe4158b883301b8d1192415970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Joan\" /></a></p>",

Tagliare a pezzi il burro di cocco (o il burro a dadini) e aggiungerlo agli ingredienti. Pulsare un po&#39; di volte per 3 secondi per sabbiare. Versare gli ingredienti secchi in una ciotola.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Con una forchetta, mescolare bene il kefir o latticello. Aggiungere il&#0160;purè di fragole e l&#39;estratto di vaniglia e mescolare ancora un po&#39;, poi versare sugli ingredienti secchi. Con una spatola mescolare solo fino a quando si ha un impasto coeso.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Rovesciare l&#39;impasto sulla lastra foderata. Spolverare la superficie con un pochino di farina e con mano delicata dargli la forma di un quadrato di 17-18 cm di lato. Con un raschietto, tagliare il quadrato in quattro per lungo e per largo in modo da ottenere 16 quadretti. Con l&#39;aiuto del raschietto, separare i quadretti in modo che siano distanti almeno 2,5 cm. Se i quadretti d&#39;angolo sono molto più piccoli degli altri, uniteli a due a due. Alla fine avrete 14-16 scone di dimensioni simili.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Depositare 2 fettine di fragola su ciascun scone e fare un pochino di pressione in modo da farle affondare leggermente nell&#39;impasto.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Infornare e cuocere per 15 minuti, o fino a quando il fondo sia dorato. Quando sono pronti, trasferire gli scone su una griglia e servirli caldi o a temperatura ambiente.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Una volta raffreddati, potete surgelare alcuni scone. Quando poi volete servirli, metteteli direttamente in forno riscaldato a 177 C per 8-10 minuti.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\"><sup>1</sup> Ricette che utilizzano purè di fragole al forno: <a href=\"http://www.pulcetta.com/2012/04/lassi-alla-fragola.html#it\" target=\"_self\">lassi</a>, <a href=\"http://theweiserkitchen.com/recipe/lettuce-with-fresh-and-roasted-strawberries-and-avocado/\" target=\"_self\">insalata</a> (in inglese).</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

Tagliare a pezzi il burro di cocco (o il burro a dadini) e aggiungerlo agli ingredienti. Pulsare un po&#39; di volte per 3 secondi per sabbiare. Versare gli ingredienti secchi in una ciotola.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Con una forchetta, mescolare bene il kefir o latticello. Aggiungere il&#0160;purè di fragole e l&#39;estratto di vaniglia e mescolare ancora un po&#39;, poi versare sugli ingredienti secchi. Con una spatola mescolare solo fino a quando si ha un impasto coeso.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Rovesciare l&#39;impasto sulla lastra foderata. Spolverare la superficie con un pochino di farina e con mano delicata dargli la forma di un quadrato di 17-18 cm di lato. Con un raschietto, tagliare il quadrato in quattro per lungo e per largo in modo da ottenere 16 quadretti. Con l&#39;aiuto del raschietto, separare i quadretti in modo che siano distanti almeno 2,5 cm. Se i quadretti d&#39;angolo sono molto più piccoli degli altri, uniteli a due a due. Alla fine avrete 14-16 scone di dimensioni simili.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Depositare 2 fettine di fragola su ciascun scone e fare un pochino di pressione in modo da farle affondare leggermente nell&#39;impasto.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Infornare e cuocere per 15 minuti, o fino a quando il fondo sia dorato. Quando sono pronti, trasferire gli scone su una griglia e servirli caldi o a temperatura ambiente.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\">Una volta raffreddati, potete surgelare alcuni scone. Quando poi volete servirli, metteteli direttamente in forno riscaldato a 177 C per 8-10 minuti.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\"><sup>1</sup> Ricette che utilizzano purè di fragole al forno: <a href=\"http://www.pulcetta.com/2012/04/lassi-alla-fragola.html#it\" target=\"_self\">lassi</a>, <a href=\"http://theweiserkitchen.com/recipe/lettuce-with-fresh-and-roasted-strawberries-and-avocado/\" target=\"_self\">insalata</a> (in inglese).</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

         "content": "<p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">My friend Maria came over last night and we had a good visit. We have been friends for about 16 years, since we both worked at the same law firm. I hadn&#39;t seen her in months. I sent her an email this morning:</span></p>\r\n<p id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23158\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Thanks so much for coming over last night. I had gotten pretty isolated in recent months, not going anywhere, just trying to summon the energy every day to do what I had to do to take care of Mother and Michael and Lola. I needed a reminder that I need my friends, too, and God gave me quite a jolting wake-up call with the trip to the hospital. Still feeling pretty weak but I have hope now that I can and will feel better, soon.</span></p>\r\n<p data-setdir=\"false\" dir=\"ltr\" id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23232\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">My neighbor came over this morning and helped me with wrapping Mother&#39;s legs, and took Lola on a short walk. She would&#39;ve made breakfast, too, except I told her I could handle that. Such a lovely and caring person. So I made breakfast for Mother and myself, then I had to sit down for an hour to rest. That&#39;s frustrating.</span></p>\r\n<p data-setdir=\"false\" dir=\"ltr\" id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23389\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">I am pondering a lot of things, feeling really philosophical this morning. I think everything happens for a reason. Processing an experience like this heart issue is a big job. I used to always be in such a hurry. I am now trying to really notice and savor tiny things, like the bird songs drifting through my window, the velvety texture of Lola&#39;s ears, the scent of gardenias when I walk out my front door, and even how much I love hot tea with just a teaspooon of honey.

We have been friends for about 16 years, since we both worked at the same law firm. I hadn&#39;t seen her in months. I sent her an email this morning:</span></p>\r\n<p id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23158\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Thanks so much for coming over last night. I had gotten pretty isolated in recent months, not going anywhere, just trying to summon the energy every day to do what I had to do to take care of Mother and Michael and Lola. I needed a reminder that I need my friends, too, and God gave me quite a jolting wake-up call with the trip to the hospital. Still feeling pretty weak but I have hope now that I can and will feel better, soon.</span></p>\r\n<p data-setdir=\"false\" dir=\"ltr\" id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23232\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">My neighbor came over this morning and helped me with wrapping Mother&#39;s legs, and took Lola on a short walk. She would&#39;ve made breakfast, too, except I told her I could handle that. Such a lovely and caring person. So I made breakfast for Mother and myself, then I had to sit down for an hour to rest. That&#39;s frustrating.</span></p>\r\n<p data-setdir=\"false\" dir=\"ltr\" id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23389\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">I am pondering a lot of things, feeling really philosophical this morning. I think everything happens for a reason. Processing an experience like this heart issue is a big job. I used to always be in such a hurry. I am now trying to really notice and savor tiny things, like the bird songs drifting through my window, the velvety texture of Lola&#39;s ears, the scent of gardenias when I walk out my front door, and even how much I love hot tea with just a teaspooon of honey. Things I used to take utterly for granted.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p data-setdir=\"false\" dir=\"ltr\" id=\"yui_3_16_0_1_1432466073965_23901\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Isn&#39;t it ironic that now we have passed the half-century mark it&#39;s like waking up in a totally different life?
