With all three of Grandpa Irv’s sons in one place, along with other family members, we talked. Not necessarily Grandpa Irv stories, or even family stories, but stories. Heck, this morning we had a long conversation about tattoos, which have nothing to do with Irv as he never had any.
But we have several good storytellers in my family, and that is a pleasure. A helpful pleasure, especially right now.
Though I had planned to return to work this afternoon, I’m taking the rest of the day off, as it’s OK with my supervisors. In the past three hours, I’ve napped, had soup, made some calls, and walked in my neighborhood. It continues to be a low-impact afternoon.
