Today, at 11:56 am in Nepal, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake shook Nepal, less than 50 miles from Kathmandu. I was glued to the news, just like Dwight.
When they announced that it was near Kathmandu, I remembered bringing our kitten, the Cat, Mandu, home. Of course, Dwight named him.
Then, that year, Dwight had a mouse costume custom made for me.
I had just finished reading The Witches by Roald Dahl to my fourth grade class. Rather than dress as a witch, Dwight thought I should be mouse. (Read the story.)
Sitting down to follow my thoughts, I remembered that Dwight and I enjoyed an earthquake when we lived in American Towers, a high-rise condo community in downtown Salt Lake City.
Before the reprise of “Love Changes Everything,” in Aspects of Love, Rose, George’s widow says, “Oh, God I miss him so.”
Not a day goes by that I don’t say, “Oh, God I miss him so.” Not a day goes by that something does not rock me into remembering.
But, like in the musical, Aspects of Love, I enjoy “the memory of a happy moment.”
