“Even Exchange”

May 26, 2012

Wow, nearly five days to go before the following month. What a month it is thusfar. One celebrating birthday which was the best ever. Deciding and redeciding to change phones. What a mixup! Very complicated! Changing from cricket to at&t and back. The delivery is ok yet returning it is a mere hassle. First going on amazon and successfully ordering items that is fun and a breeze. All the while Andre has been here and is a pleasure. So natural to be around,of course he is still working. He is a comfort to me. There is an even exchange beyond compare, with sharing food, consideration, and a bit of comical humor, serious chatter, genuine love. The management here at country meadows has been great. Kathy said they are bending the rules never breaking them. She said that if Andre stays beyond the end of June, I will have to consider a one bedroom apt. That is out of the question b/c of the expense. Don’t really want to involve anyone else, for it is unfair. Between now and then Andre will decide. Been asking him occasionally however don’t want to keep on with it for it will make things uneasy and rightfully so. Andre will be working six days a week and doing some saute. He is saving money and will evenually go to San Diego to stay with Ricky. First time paying online and what an experience. Must have called associated nearly three and phoning cricket once to get the account number from them. The people at associated were very professional. Been paying attention to hockey the Rangers and the Devils play tonight. If the Rangers win they will go to game seven. How exciting is that! Life is fine! Mind over matter!

What a change weatherwise, it being literally cold toward evening and throughout the night and morning hours, it becomes slightly warmer as the day continues. Whether it being a country which is divided as it was in the former Yugoslovia, with Bosnia and Croatia it was an inevitability to crumble into lasting pieces.Whether one speaks of a community which strives to do what is reasonable, this too will fail if not for the lack of numbers. There are more reasons to count why many families are simply at odds and can’t or won’t come to terms with reality. Forgiveness is not in their vocabulary. So these families go through life with the pain of being self righteous subsequently excluding the following generations to come from the mere pleasure of meeting the family in question or worse yet getting to know and having the pleasure of their company. Needless to say it is painfully for all concern. When children are deprived of family members such as aunts, uncles, cousins or brothers, sisters, mothers or fathers. There  is a genuine loss that can never be replaced.
