Tuesday 15- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 53 to 79 degrees, NW winds at 10 to 18 with gusts to 35 MPH, humidity around 26 percent, mostly cloudy skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 77. West wind between 8 and 10 mph. Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 54. West southwest wind between 9 and 16 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.”
Linda is having a little get together of Ron’s close friends at 4pm but wanted me to print out a PDF form for her before I came over. I spent the rest of the time before 4pm going through twelve years of photos on my computer and putting every picture of Ron and Linda in a folder to take over to her; it ended up being 280Megs, 234 pictures and one video.
I arrived at Ron and Linda’s and helped Linda break down the hospital bed and put it away outside. Terry Serrels, John Demers, Linda Sibio with her husband Blake, Seimi Shiba, Ruth Denison, and Piper Cort showed up a little later bringing food and friendship. We all sat and took turns telling our stories about Ron. Each story was like the changing scenery from a train window as it races its way through a mountain pass and onto farmlands, towns, and cities; a life that was complex but well lived. I could write of these stories here but I think it would be appropriate of me to keep them private to our little group who knew and loved Ron so very much.
I got home a little after 10pm and wrote to my journal, posted it to the web and called it a night.
