  • Gone are the days
    when I crawled into bed
    relaxed under cool sheets
    and drifted happily into sleep.

    Now, as soon as I lie down
    the pain begins, stabbing
    shooting down my legs.

    I have to give up posting
    on Cowbird. I will continue

    if they can accept people
    loving stories on cellphones.

    Many blessings to all
    of you my dear friends.
