Dear Rochester friend and regular reader J. sent me a housewarming gift: a plant that I start inside, but can be placed outdoors after it begins to grow and when the weather is reliably warm enough. I’m delighted.
I left Rochester because being nearer my adult kids seemed like a good idea, and it is. But I didn’t leave my Rochester friends, who continue to be a precious part of my life.
Thank you, J. and all, for your good wishes and messages of support and housewarming gifts. I am blessed to have met and forged deep bonds with you.
