Just Another Day - euphoriaI wore shorts todayas if taunting Mother Nature;daring her to toss me back into the snowy depthsit seems we just dug ourselves out of.Driving to the mall with Alex, I turned up the radioand sang to a song you like,laughing when Alex bobbed his head the way you do.I wished you were here, of course,and when I picked up my violin laterthe rain started to fall, offering a soft percussionto the plaintive singing of my strings.I closed my eyes and imagined you there,smiling at me from the spot on the couchwhere you always seem to sit.I baked you cookies while Alex napped,and as I stood there with my bowl and wooden spoonI looked at the letters you've sent me, carefully tapedto the wall above my sink.They make me smile, and in your artistic pen strokesI see through to the soul that wrote them.We have so much fun cooking together, and suddenlymy eyes can't read the recipe.I pack the cookies carefully in a box destined for Thailand,and touch a just-kissed fingertip to eac
