He Walks!

Dwane needed an arm to keep him steady so I met him at the Sand Bar where he'd been visiting Romana and the gang. I encourage him to do that and so he does it readily.
He needed to use the facilities and up he stood, walking toward the restrooms, using nothing to aid him. No cane, no walker, no wheelchair.
A miracle! It took a moment for it to sink in that Dwane was on the mend, if not already. Everyone at the Sand Bar is proud of his progress. I am, especially.

Discussions Of Summer

Tomorrow begins the cycle all over again. Summer begins tomorrow and I ponder the activities about to take place, or not. Will Raven return to the island with a cell phone welded to his ear? Will he actually become human and communicate with us, or find another avenue to test the limits of adults? News at 11:00.

He's a year older now. Fifteen journies around the sun. All I have is a brief memory of his left eye peeking out of a tangled mane of hair. Peek-a-boo!

I'm eager to see him again. We both are.

Our sun screens are ready. My bathing suit needs mending and I dare not try them on these days. It wouldn't be pretty. Ah Summer.

Αναρίθμητοι Ημέρες

Έχει πολύ καιρό μετά την τελευταία μου γραπτώς.

Οι μέρες παίζουν μαζί και λιώνει σε ένα άλλο τόσο πολύ που μόλις και μετά βίας μπορώ να διακρίνουν τις ημέρες. Η δουλειά μου κρατά μου επικεντρώθηκε και το ίδιο κάνουν και οι φίλοι μου.

Θα παίξει πολύ μαζί.
