Thanks, Rumigirl. I had seen that at the NYT website but forgot - I thought of you at the time but have been in a fog this week. I'll save it for after this terrible head cold clears a bit - I slipped on getting a cold prevention & care kit together. Some basics arrive tomorrow].

Just thinking of his energy brings a smile to my face, in fond memory. I do a proper "Thank You" after I see it in a couple days.

Here's another link to another slide show from the tribute:

Tribute attendees slide show

It's just too sad that he's gone. What a true original. At least he wasn't sick for long, and was working right up until close to the end, doing what he loved. What an inspiration.

There's a documentary on him that I want to see.

He lived in Carnegie Hall Studios in one room. I remember when I was young going to ballet classes in Carnegie Hall with many of the great ballet teachers, Russians, English, and even Cyd Charisse!!

Later, I went to massage therapists and physical therapists, also in Carnegie Hall. I didn't know about Bill Cunningham then.

I meant to say before: I hope that you feel better soon! On this coast "virus du jour" seems to be going around. And it's a doozy!

My husband's whole department has/had it. And he's still trying to get over it, fever, sweating, coughing, nasal congestion, fatigue and feeling crummy---the works!

So, rest up, and I hope that you beat it soon. I'm sure that I don't need to tell you, but simple nasal washes with salt water can help a lot. I find that in lieu of netti pots, bulb syringes from the drug store are easier. Or empty plastic squeeze bottles.

I missed your posts, Keebler and was already wondering how you were doing.
Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

Thank you for the well wishes.

I tired to write this a half dozen times in past few days and the words just are all tumbled. It's like when I had to learn to read and write (twice) over the past two decades).

So . . . it's clear to me that I must take a break (likely months) from typing, the web, and anything not essential to my ability to function. If there is an ounce of energy after basics, then my study notes must be next.

The sore throat is now relieved (thanks to lomatium, blk elderberry, enteric coated peppermint) but all that set me back decades in endurance where I never had achieved much, anyway. Actually, feels like mono back in '71 when all this really started. Glad I've learned some things about management but forced rest just pulls me down.

It's clear that even without the upcoming sensory assault, I've got to put my attention into getting better - not just getting by.

And the web has been my place to try to write (but my ability has never really gone past a certain point) to help others when I could do nothing else. That's no longer an option.

"RE"construction of my apt. complex has been awful for a full year and - not the 30-day notice we were promised - just a few days' until they start on my bldg. Jackhammering of my deck will be the interesting part.

I am in survival mode for planning - functioning & working out options since my cabin in the woods is just in my mind, that's not an option for a real retreat.

Happy Autumn to all -- remember Gluten Free if you indulge in any Halloween snacks and Equal Exchange now makes a very nice 88% Dark Chocolate. Their 80% is still good, too.

And, do not trust any label that says it's "gluten free" - proper research must be done because they can lie about that. CERTIFIED GF with the official seal matters.

Use of shared equipment with wheat or barley is NOT gluten free. Food from any kitchen or deli where "wheat is flying" is also not gluten free.

Here's to the best autumn of the year, eh?

Oh, Keebler, I'm so sorry to hear that---all of it!! I so understand.

Just a word of possible advice on the construction issue, which I have been through plenty myself. Maybe noise cancelling headphones would help? That is, if you can tolerate them. Bose has a refund policy, but they are expensive!!

If not, I sometimes used ear plugs plus ear muffs on top (cold weather type). ANd when it starts up early in the am (which it does), I put 1-2 pillows over my head. Along with AC or a fan when it's not too cold, which now it is.

I also slept on the couch for a year, because the noise was unbearable in the bedroom.

Of course, there is no need to respond to this, if you even see it. I am really sad at this turn of events for you. I understand it all too well from experience.

You are always here to help others with your advice, which is very valuable, but as you say, now is the time to rest and think of your own needs.
Be good to yourself and focus on getting better, because you deserve it.

We miss you! But, I understand that energy cannot be cheated. Take care of yourself.

You are too valuable to wear yourself out.

Rest up and come back when you have some energy to spare.

Thanks for the tips on Gluten Free. You are right. It does not do any good to say Gluten Free when all the other products in the facility incorporate gluten.

We found that out the hard way.

Hugs!
