I’ve learned a lot about scripting, and writing in general.
I wrote it to be read, but I have enjoyed the experience — therapeutic almost.
Along the way, I found a friend. October 2020, a fellow SSTP participant (LSU 1966) wrote to me in response to one of my blog entries (**). Since meeting by email, we’ve corresponded and have visited by phone occasionally. As Dr. Christman might say: Serendipity indeed.

Back in March 2020, we went down to Lufkin for Nancy’s Covid shot. It was an ideal spring day for me. She was waiting in line inside. I was outside enjoying the spring air. I saw the flowers, weeds, and litter covering the open lot next door. Lots of sun there but I had parked in the shade mostly, was able to comfortably lean against the car hood and observe the butterflies visiting the flowers. Seems they took a casual route alighting for a while, then flying a few feet up, sometimes going cross wind, maybe a bit slow, not tempted by the straight path.
