"Tomorrow is the big day!" Rosa exclaimed calling a moment ago.
"You go get your car!" I exclaimed back.
"I was talking about you working," Rosa said as she laughed.
It is a big day for the both of us. Rosa buys a used car and I start work and orientation. Rosa is so excited about being able to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings in other towns. She can catch a meeting a night now.
"I think I am going to drive to the ocean next week," Rosa told me wistfully. "You'll be working."
"It is a five hour drive, but I know how much you would love to see it," I said. "Go for it, but be careful."
I sometimes forget that Rosa is better equipped to handle life than I. She has been through so much that nothing scares her. I admire that fierce wanderlust and determination in her.
I agreed to pick her up this afternoon. I want to ride out to the lake and look at the water levels. I would also like to stop at the dam and see if the Vietnamese fishermen are out fishing for carp. It is going to be a good and restful afternoon -- much needed as I enter the maelstrom tomorrow night. I hope you all have a good Sunday.
