A typical day

There is no typical day in our universe, although there are more and more days that tend to look similar. It is a bit like holding your breath and letting it out, holding your breath and letting it out.
It is hard to wait, as we all know, and only waiting, and not doing is impossible to sustain.
I write because it gives me an outlet for all of the things in my head. Frank goes to the gym because it gives him an outlet for the boredom.

But knowing what these men and women face every day, and how strong they are to live through what they see - and then to have an injury that takes the "who" and "what" they are away....
Devastating.
It's one of those days, a drizzly wet morning, cool.... feels like Fall.
These mornings lend themselves to thinking and wondering.
Maybe it is time to stop the wondering and get on with the day.
