A note for regular readers of this blog

Just a note to let you all know why I haven’t been posting. My mother died last Friday. I hope to begin posting again soon, but right now I’m taking it a day at a time.

@David

Be gentle with yourself. Do what you can to heal. The loss of a parent is a huge wound.

And thank you. He left behind a huge circle of friends in his online network. And yes, this year is from Hell. Another friend in this circle has called it “this *FUCKING* year” that is determined to rip down everything good or kind or vulnerable.

To give you an idea how strongly he feels on the subject, he’s a Southern Baptist by upbringing and in the quarter century I’ve known him has used the F-bomb only once. For this.

I’m scared how else this damn year will tell us to hold its beer. God.

My condolences, David. My mother passed away some years ago, after a long and harrowing struggle with cancer; oddly enough, I had just dreamed about her last night (it’s taken me a while before she started appearing in dreams in her pre-illness state, so I always feel a little grateful when that happens). What a crappy little club to welcome you to.
I hope the next few days/weeks/however long you need are a helpful time for you to start healing. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Take care of each other.
