This afternoon our philosopher granddaughter came in from out-of-State.. Her father, two half-sisters, an aunt, and both sets of grandparents life here. We are alienated (long story, longer mea culpa) from her father's side of the family, so it was good to get some news of them and find ouit that they are doing well.
She introduced us to her young guy pal, a poet. We spent a lovely afternoon talking about philosophy, poetry and and other thing that i rarely have an opportunity to discuss, except through this journal. He read one of his poems; i admit to being very impressed. We all promised to stay more in touch, Dianne got very tired, which was expected and has been in bed two hours now.
