  1. Hi Alice,

    You sound like you're making peace with someof the more uncomfortable rites of passage of our early 50's life. We evidentally have a lot more in common now than when we were just cello-kids at Ithaca. Though I didn't get to do any mother-ing (sigh!),I did marry and divorce, got a masters' with intention to be a Social worker- therapist (only got to the agency level before the 1st recession hit in '92) And I have been a dog-walker and cat sitter (TOO part-time lately)and am also pretty familiar with the verge, though I often feel it more as if it were a stagnant thing, sometimes hard to push forward and see over to the other side of the chasym... You sound brave and embracing of the challenge. Do you still play regularly- are you in any kind of community orchestra? Check out my facebook contact information and e-mail me sometime, okay?
    (I share my own apartment-based life with a fun senior labrador mix gal and 2 kitties..)And I am blessed also with some incredibly gracious, large-hearted and loyal friends -to whom the noun 'love' IS a verb-to share this part of the Big Picture...

    Be well,Alice!
