Jan's funeral is today. As a matter of fact, it starts in a few minutes. I won't be going. I'm sure people will wonder why I didn't go to this one, or two others I can think of. I don't have a pat answer so it will also go unaddressed here. Strangely, just before I awoke this morning, I had a dream in which Jan appeared! I don't recall that ever happening. For whatever reason I was in a big box electronics store and was buying a complete replacement for my car's stereo receiver, speakers, etc. I had just finished examining the merchandise and worrying about whether I would be able to install the system when I looked up. There, standing in the checkout line, was Jan, smiling at me. There was some sort of bright red stain on her temples, otherwise she seemed happy and healthy. What was that about?
The night's rest left me feeling much better today. Still very little appetite but the heartburn, body aches, and headaches have all eased. Though not fully recovered from whatever illness gripped me yesterday, I came in to work. I've got a few easy tasks I can accomplish without pushing too hard.
Heading out the door this morning I noticed the sun shining on some beautiful flowers at the front of the house. I took a couple of minutes and shot a few pictures.
