I found my favorite bracelet! Green of course.
Lost it the day I came back from seeing my favorite aunt in Ann Arbor, who is losing her mind. I was trying to be philosophical [sniffle] that I could get another bracelet but not another Aunt Ruth.
Today was a big day for her, as she was moved abruptly from independent living to assisted living in another place. Was expecting a volcano of anger when she realized she was moving even farther away from her home and friends, but apparently things went ok today.
And I found the bracelet I lost that other time...coincidence/synchronicity. Ready to live in the Emerald City again as the kind, gentle, and wise ruler Ozma of Oz. [end manic run of thoughts for tonight...probably]
Those of you who, like me, have ADHD will be amused to hear that I had put my bracelet in a very safe place. And promptly forgot that I had done that. I put my Cornell diploma in a very safe place and then couldn't find it for YEARS. Actually wrote to the college and got a duplicate, which to this day remains in the frame on the wall. It was in the bottom drawer of my childhood dresser, in my parents' home. Isn't that a good place? I mean, except for completely forgetting where I put it?
One cool thing about my aunt is that she has a new man in her life. A veteran with many interesting experiences from WWII, he is interested in visiting her in her new home, calls her "a remarkable woman." Ladies: a worthy goal: tho pushing 80 and losing your mind, you still have a quality man pursuing you. Go for it.
I think the real jewel is my aunt.
