2 Years Today…

November 13, 2017, at 12:55pm, my world careened out of control, causing me to break away from the ground that my feet had long since walked upon.  I slipped into the blackness of an uncharted space that was unknown, lonely, and confusing.  The warning shocks came 10.5 months earlier as my family prepared to go...

I Still Do…

Today is 1 year and 11 months. I can feel the 2 year mark looming closer...especially as the season changes and the temperatures are lowering, the leaves are changing colors and winds are blowing as they did 2 years ago.

After Death Etiquette…

What an odd thing to write about!  Before November 13, 2017, no one could have convinced me I'd be writing at all, let alone about what to do after someone dies.  But, here I am.  Oddly enough, 2 weeks before my Beloved died, we stood together in a cold hospital room with a friend who...
