Early fall day
As I was leaving her booth, a man walked up to me and asked if I am "DJan-ity." I smiled and acknowledged that is me, all right. He said he never misses my blog and wondered how he might join our hiking group. I told him that he needs to join the Senior Center and meet us before 8:00am on Thursday. "Yikes! That early?" he said, so he may or may not join us. It is curious to realize that people I have never met feel like they know me because of my blog. It's not an unpleasant feeling for me, but it makes me realize that I need to be sensitive to what I write about others; privacy needs to be honored. I knew that already, but a reminder is always welcome.
I have taken some cold medicine and am now ready to nestle into my easy chair and read a book. My short excursion out of the apartment was enough to make me realize that I need to rest today, wrap myself up in a nice blankie and hunker down.
