Monday was Opening Day. Always important in my heart. So full of both memory and promise. When I think of Cubs Opening Day, that Springsteen lyric keeps going through my head: "I'm ready to grow young again."
Kelly, a worker who sits near me but works on another account, said she recently found it in her drawer, never worn, and thought of me and Opening Day. How sweet was that!
I didn't wear it. I told Kelly we were keeping it draped over my files like Christmas lights to celebrate the holiday. I thanked her again and again.
The Cubs beat the Pirates 10-0 in the Home Opener. I told Kelly it was the scarf. Obviously.
These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 65!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live just outside Chicago, the best city in the world. I'm an aunt and a friend. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

This made me so happy

April Prompt -- Day 9
Born at the stroke of midnight, on the cusp of days and astrological signs.
Confounding and confounded growing up.
Found and made my own way.
Loved and lost.
Ready for the next chapter.
