“Eileen, May I Tell You About My Leg?”

Hi Eileen. May I tell you about my leg?

I thought of something funny this morning while drinking my tea in the green boston rocker. I think it’s a boston rocker – not sure. I was wearing shorts – like Bermuda shorts [I don’t know what else to call them] – and my right ankle was resting on my left knee. And my right calf was twitching a little. This is a common occurrence with me – although it always seems weird, too. I wonder why it does that. And, being imaginative, I thought that my leg muscle was doing morse code by these twitches. I no longer have my Boy Scout Manual that had all the morse codes listed; so, I couldn’t decipher the message. I just imagined it was S.O.S.

Changing the subject, now: I wrote something that has many thoughts of you in it. Its title is Mark David’s Journal -Chapter One. I started it on December 1, 2019. It begins by mentioning the weather outside; [it was snowing] however, it becomes personal with memories from the summer of ’74. It is about 7 pages long, so far. I wonder if you would like to receive it by paper mail.

Saturday, July 25, 2020. 5:43 AM. I think about calling you, but, I can’t do it. I need you to call me. You texted me that I could call you if I felt like talking; but, maybe, I’d rather mostly listen . . . and by your words I might be encouraged to say something — to add something to what you’re saying. While remembering our last phone conversation, you mentioned ice cream. That reminded me of The Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland, near Diamond Hill State Park. When I was living on Papineau Avenue in East Woonsocket from 1971-1984, I used to drive there sometimes and have an ice cream cone. I have not been there since moving from Papineau Avenue in ’84. I visited their webpage recently and enjoyed seeing pictures of the property. I remember their parking lot was spacious. As I wrote the name Diamond Hill State Park, above, I was reminded of Neil Diamond. I like his music. And, sometimes, when listening to it, it occurs to me that his last name is just right for his music. And now I’m thinking of another singer/song writer who wrote a song with the word diamond in it: John Denver.

Psalm 29

“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the LORD Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things,” says the LORD Almighty.” -Malachi 4:1-3. NIV Study Bible.
