      I know we GBS/CIDPers live few & far between. I’m visiting in Boston & want to know if anyone lives in or near Boston that would like to get together for a cup of coffee & a hug or just talk?

      Love & gentle hugs, smitty

      oh man wish I was, I’d join you!

      Maybe we could use your thread to see if we have anyone that lives near any of us that we can meet up with on occasion?

      Well thanks Lori! I’m having a cup now & here’s a hug for you. The weather’s nice here & the leaves are beautiful. How’s your weather. It’s still hot in Texas.

      Love & gentle hugs, smitty

      I’ll have some hot tea with you and enjoy the leaves. It is cooling off here in Idaho, leaves are changing, there is a bite in the night air, the sunsets are amazing because of the clouds in the distance (the weather seems to move around us here in the valley), I am still enjoying dandelions and my California Poppies have gone wild! My dandelions are odd ones, I will have them thru the winter, I think the Universe knows I love to see those spots of yellow struggling to peek through the white snow. It teaches me to remain strong every time I see one.
      This is from last winter:

      I love the changing of the seasons even though it marks the definite passage of time, making it all the more obvious that the days are passing and so is life as it always seems to do no matter what. I adore the winter and am hoping for lots of snow this year because it makes me happy just to watch it gracefully float to the ground in the mesmerizing way snow does. I like to stand in it with my face to the sky and feel the flakes on my face, melting in my hair, and listening to the absolute silence around me. When snow falls, the world seems to quiet in awe and wonder. This silence and feeling the snow fall is a wonderful experience.

      Autumn though is another story, the crunch of leaves under foot, the bright colors against crisp skies and white clouds, watching leaves drift from their respective spots on their trees. Listening to the wind sing as it blows through the trees against the dying leaves singing a sonnet of another season passing, whispering promises of things to come and memories of the past year. Harvest time, the coats on animals thickening and filling in, raindrops heavy and loud as they dance on the windows and rooftops.

      Yes, I think I will sit with you for a while and we can enjoy these things together if only in photos and words. Cheers my friend, and hugs too.

Boston is ok. have you been to quincy market? take a ride over to the cape if you are there long enough and are able. It is very pretty and the sea food is fresh and delicious!

      I’ve been home for a week now. We didn’t go to the market, or eat any seafood, just had a wonderful visit & drove around to enjoy the leaves. I understand why people from everywhere go to the NE coast to see the foilage in the fall. The colors are breath-taking & can not be duplicated. My computer crashed before our trip & now I’m back on line on my own computer. Come join us for that cup of coffee or tea.

      Love, smitty

      Thanks for the message on my phone! I am happy & doing fine! My computer crashed, was up breifly, then crashed & died. Now new service & I’m learning how to use it. Doing Christmas concerts at my church. I sing alto. Yesterdays concerts were awesome, one more concert tonight, wish I could share the music. There are about 500 members in the choir, 50 in the orchestra. Come have a cup of tea with us.
      Love, smitty
