Springtime: Imagined conversation 70

on September 6, 2018

Me: Thank God August is over.

Anthony: Okay, will do.

Me: Do what?

Anthony: I thought you asked me to thank God?

Me: Oh, I see….

Anthony: I felt it too, the August blues.

Me: Did you?

Anthony: Well, you know how I dislike winter.

Me: I didn’t think you got winter over there.

Anthony: No, but I felt for you.

Me: It wasn’t so much the winter; it was because it was the month you died. I thought I would get all sad on the 23rd but instead I was sad for the whole month. It was horrible.

Anthony: And now?

Me: Ever since the 1st of September – the first day of spring – it is as if a heavy fog has lifted.

Anthony: Good on you, Jules.

Me: I got a lot of comfort out of our conversations during August though.

Anthony: My pleasure.

Me: I don’t feel the need to talk with you as much now.

Anthony: You’ve said that before. Don’t worry – I will survive.

Me: Ha – ironic.

Anthony: You have a lot of living to do, Jules – at least another 20 years.

Me: If you had said that in August I would have felt daunted. Ming said my eyes went all dark.

Anthony: And now?

Me: Now I feel a sense of excitement.

Anthony: Shine on, baby!

Me: You too.

Anthony: I am so shiny now you would need your sunglasses.

Me: For some reason that conjured an image of nudity.

Anthony: You are so perceptive, Jules! I am at the naturist beach.

Me: Oh hell.

Anthony: No, this is heaven.

  3. The last part cracked me up. I wonder how much of communications like these are simply our imagination and what part may be “real.” Here, we are going into the fall, which is pretty as the leaves change, but they will soon be gone, light is disappearing and the temperatures are dropping which is somewhat depressing. I am happy that you are coming into Spring, which is a season of rebirth and will lift your spirits. Nice to know our loved ones are encouraging us as we move forward.

  4. Who I am says:

    Sounds like you are beginning the path of healing. love n hugs

    Love it – I see a shift. From despair to humor. Julie is back!!

  7. shoreacres says:

    The reason’s different, but I’m with you on the thank God August is over. For us, it’s the release from heat — for you, the beginning of spring. I think we both can come out of hibernation a bit, now.

  8. I feel so optimistic for you, Julie.

  9. You survived August the first of many Augusts to come and hopefully each August will be a little less painful for you. September is a shinny month so shine on Julie, shine on.

  10. I’ve been very inactive here … but dropped in to see how you were doing. It’s been a difficult year for you for sure. Your ‘conversations’ though seem to have helped you cope somewhat. I hope that you soon begin to feel some sunshine in your life…. Diane
