It is a cold spell in Louisiana”s Acadiana region. I cut the grass during a few warm hours in the low fifties Fahrenheit today. But we have enjoyed gumbo and fires in the fireplace. This was yet another joy and blessing with the woman that I love. But there are many challenges in these days and these challenges may have something to say about my next post and about the state of my life over the next few days and weks.
But I am grateful for the pleasures, joys and comforts that Clara and I have enjoyed in this winter. I hope that the challenges we face will be sufficiently resolved to allow us to proceed with all that an engaged couple should proceed with. Tonight the joys of a winter night’s fire with my Beloved are very real pleasures.
