Some days - such as today - you wake up in Denver and this is your front yard. There's something about the snow that makes everything prettier. Take the nastiest junk yard you've ever seen, let Nature do Her dusting and voila! Beauty.
Thanks for all the sweet notes of support regarding my dad. He's out of the hospital and doing fine. Still, this brings up some hard questions about the future. Where is the best place for him to live? Who will take care of him? What about my mother? She lives alone in Long Beach, with no family nearby. Such thoughts make it difficult to plan for the future. Perhaps in the long run, I'll have to move back to California and kiss my snowy mornings goodbye.
Dunno. We shall see.
