Inheritance, simple gifts and shine

Bus Stop by Bob Trammell

- Inheriting a big committee job by default when someone else resigns inspires this subject line in an email from friend Steve, "When is the Inaugeration?"

- Reading the Caring Bridge posts about Bob Trammell's recovery from illness are so inspiring. Helen reports that, "Andrew, one of our neighbors visited with Bob, much to Bob's delight. He loves those kids. Last night they brought dinner. When outside, their offers to help with whatever we are doing are immediate. These simple gifts give such joy to Bob it brings tears."

- The early morning rain makes the streets shine. A woman standing at the bus stop puts me in mind of Bob's painting "Bus Stop."
