As I sit here writing, I realize it is a little respite from the everyday; a way to relieve any pain, make sense of things, daydream, an attempt to use words to explain abstract, invisible and palpable sentiment. This writing has taken up sometimes a little or much of my day but what matters is the discipline of sitting in front of a blank screen and having faith something will eventually flow out of me and be created. That much is certain.
Today and all this past week has been one of trial, process and negotiation. I have seen my emotions ride the proverbial roller coaster and my strength, tested. Priorities shifted for everyone in our family this week.
We come together. We say our goodbyes.
