Day 2 of the Cold, 03/07/11, Chicago

Wake at 8:30 – not feeling well – do yesterday’s log.

Meet Karin and John downstairs at 9:30. Karin offers me coffee, orange juice – she baked banana bread, makes a fruit smoothie.

We take a walk on there property overlooking the largest natural reserve in Connecticut. It beckons me to return to take photos.

Karin and I leave for the airport stopping on the way for Thera-flu: Karin brought hot water… Nurse Karin.

Karin and I say goodbye at the airport – the small airport (HDN) is packed with people due to delayed morning flights. It is 2:30.

Finally board and head to Chicago.

The woman next to me has Gibson tattooed on her wrist. I ask if that is guitar and if she is a musician. Yes on both accounts. Gibson is also the name of her singing dog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jCEtgtE61I

She is from Dana Point and also has a cold.

Land in Chicago. Gary picks me up. He is at the end of a 10 day cold.

At the rectory of the Church of the Atonement http://www.churchoftheatonement.org/ I visit with Gary and J.D. over Italian Liquor and red wine, pasta with asparagus and sausage.

Gary and I discuss a book that has affected him: A Framework for Understanding Poverty

Have a Hot Totty – watch a bit of a movie, hit the sack with some nighttime Thera-flu.
