- moments of vivid clarity while I'm cleaning house
- realizing that yes, I can have soul mates of any shape and age
- packing my most treasured items into a box for fear of losing them.
- living without the things that I thought I couldn't live without
- being temporarily discombobulated.
- the good meals I make when I'm cleaning out the freezer
- nights on the town that make me feel, well, OLD
- waking up with a horrible case of flu only to see there is an epidemic of it
- how much I can miss someone that I never met face to face
