It was a lovely day, I hope I remember it. When I woke up the sun after four days of solid rain, was strong. I could feel my body soaking up the sun. Ferida and I walked a few blocks to Tal Bagel for an early breakfast of bagel and coffee. The bagels are made on the premises and are crunchy warm and delicious. We took a table outside ordered a cream cheese filled bagel and coffee and leisurely ate while watching the rest of our pass by.
I watch through severely diminished eyesight. My world is one of various shades of grey I can see shapes and movement faces can’t delineate each feature and on a cloudy or rainy day it all looks to me like Paris on a rainy or cloudy day. I imagine I’m seeing the Champs Elysee or the narrow streets of London. I really feel I’m there.
When we finished our breakfast I decided I looked a mess and Ferida walked to the hair salon Had my hair washed .Some If her hair looks ok she usually feels whatever else she is wearing is ok.
