Good Things

While walking in sunshine the other day (before the storm, the rain, the clouds, and the rough seas), I was listening to music on my 15-year-old iPod. “Good Thing” by the Fine Young Cannibals came on. A great workout song.

I heard “Good thing, where have you gone?” and an image of my sister Dale flashed in my head.

I started crying.

I kept on walking at my vigourous, happy pace. I kept on crying.

It’s been 36 years (March 7) since she died. My good thing, you’ve been gone too long.

Dale would have adored San Geraldo and these other two good things in my life.
