I see the date entry of my last blog, December 13, 2016, and I realize how everything changed two days later. Sudden death, shock/grief/[whatever comes here], then a near death, then more of grief's grip all within a two-week period. Throw in Christmas, a funeral, and contemplating mortality between slow bites of food and fruits from neighbors and family and friends to reframe purpose, compassion, and unexpectedness.
The blizzards became a comforting blanket. I looked out the window for hours to watch the snow build itself into shapes and lines. And as a creative person, I'm working through this with two new projects rumbling in my head and heart.
More to come on what's ahead....very soon.
