Tonight I give thanks to Tito Puente & Count Basie.
It was easier spending time with them on the bandstand, playing in my ears, as I cooked and cleaned and such.
Somehow, their world is so much more fun and lively than the one here.
And thanks too to all those who offered words of support here.
Maybe tomorrow I will be enough myself to engage them.
May you all have had moments where you felt the connection, affirmation and love today.
You certainly all deserve it.
