"My house is a very, very, very fine house" CSNY

Time, time time is on my side

The Rolling Stones

Well, despite Dr. Forman's OK, I have decided to avoid the several hours of recycled plane air and the 10 days of Italian culture and food. Instead I will stay home and enjoy sunny Socal. I will miss seeing my son Will and his beautiful and talented muse Laura in Florence, but they will be back home in December. No Botticelli or gelato for now. I will go when I don't have to spend so much of my time worrying about food and meds and masks and toilets and crowds. And when I can drink some vino. It will be more of a vacation. More relaxed. 

And I can wait.

Before the transplant, there was an urgency to travel, to build memories to see me through, and to give my wife and children images to counter what might be desperate times ahead. To have something fresh and positive to hold onto should the worst have happened.

But that is no longer the case. Now, "Time is on my side, Yes it is"

Thanks to all those who wrote, pro and con. It really helped me sort this out.

FYI, the John Deutschendorf referenced in my last post is probably better known to you by his stage name, John Denver.

Good choice. Take another local trip to SD or Northern Cal.
