Now obviously I can’t wrap up solitude, but I can enjoy the gift of four days without any obligations or commitments. After the heartfelt memorial service for my mom and all the activities of the weekend, I don’t have the psychic energy for any B&F (back and forth) conversations with anyone. Not to worry--having read The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, I can trust that my Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle won’t interrupt me. She is an extremely solitary soul who loves her silence. We'll do just fine together.
