Those elegant California White Pelicans have come back to the park near my house. I have to take this as a sign that life will always be beautiful. Tomorrow morning I have to go to the hospital for some surgery. I'll get out the same day, though I might not feel the same as when I walked in. I certainly won't be able to eat the same. Hope to be healed by Thanksgiving. Wouldn't want to miss candied yams or pumpkin pie. In the meantime, I will think of those lovely pelicans and relax!
