A truly, truly beautiful day in Southern California. 82 degrees, the phone says. All the windows in the house are open, and the fresh air is truly a delight.
The picture shows a portion of the Japanese Garden in the Huntington Library. Like me, it has seen better days; it still has a special beauty, but it is not what it once was. Unlike me, it's getting renovated... it'll be closed for a year, and then reopen, even more glorious than ever.
I should be so lucky.
But to return to the weather: wonderfully warm, simply delightful. And I'm already overheated, and sitting in my skivvies as I type this.
Overheated, that is, except for my legs, which after months of being horribly cold, are finally edging towards "warm enough."
Great. I'm Schrödinger's MS patient. I'm 50% comfortable. Am I comfortable? Am I uncomfortable? Nope—I'm 50% comfortable.
Well, at least the 50% comfortable part is comfortable.
And, with any luck, I too will soon be granted an overdue renovation, and emerge even better than before. Until then...
Well, 50% is higher than it could be, I guess. You take what you can get, in this business.
