Attitude of gratitude

Posted: Thursday, Sep 5th, 2013

A celebration of Burt Lippman’s “life well lived” was held Friday, Aug. 30, at the Newport Performing Arts Center. This photo of Burt doing “the spoon trick,” graced the back cover of the program handed out to attendees.

I am writing this column today with an enormous attitude of gratitude to all of you who helped (and are still helping me) with The Grief Journey over the loss of my husband.  The journey isn’t over, but it will change with time, and it will go on as long as it needs to – for all of us whose lives were touched by Burt Lippman.  I would love to thank each of you with a handwritten note, but you would not be able to read my handwriting. Macular degeneration is a challenge for folks who are stuck with it, but a computer can be kicked up into a larger font, and for that I am grateful. I am also extremely grateful for the things I can do, like daytime driving and spotting a small blob of cat barf on the carpet before my dog, Charley, finds it.  Dogs and cats often do disgusting things.
