I’m sitting upstairs listening to the blustering storm outside (a blizzard is forecast) and feeling lucky and happy with my life. After all, I’m snowed in with some of my dearest friends – two of my sons, their children, and my former wife (still a great friend). Luke drove down this morning with Kaylee and Josh, and, just in case, they brought their overnight stuff to wait out the storm. Jan came up from Mystic, and she, too, brought all she needs to be warm and cozy for a night or two. We’ve had a dream-come-true day together, reading, playing, and laughing by the fire, and sledding and loving the snowfall outside. Now the kids are quieting down in their various beds, and I’m thanking whatever should be thanked for putting me right where I am on this wild winter night.
