All right

"I'm doing all right."

I wrote it without really considering the question. Well, all I considered was typing "fine" versus "all right." That done, the sentence typed, I realized it wasn't true. I was distracted and unable to focus, generally unsettled most of the day: a bit down.

I should change it, I thought to myself, but his was just a quick email, the sort you get from a smartphone. A "how are you?" from someone I miss tremendously but only correspond with once every couple of months isn't looking for a day-by-day response.

And so, big picture: "I'm doing all right."

I can only hope his "i am well" means just that.
