I'm Making a List

On the eve of surgery I have this urge to make a list of all the outstanding things I have left to do and all the people I have left outstanding. Lately, it's the ones from years ago coming back into the fore. It's like a trip on the merry-go-round--there's that wonderful prancing horse again, there's the yellow steeds pulling the winged chariot, there's the dapple gray. Or maybe the cycles are comforting because however many changes I've undergone, there they are, my old friends, still willing to listen and still willing to talk.
