Been a long time. Once again. I don’t get around to writing much here anymore. Not that I don’t think about it. I do. Almost every day. Or mostly, every night. But, and that’s a no small but, I keep forgetting what I thought of when I get around to write.
So, I end up with this kind of text that you are now reading. Not my best effort but enough to fill out some space.
Life came to a halt last October, on this very date. I know, it didn’t actually stop then, it just feels like it has. Life still moves along, in the background. Just as it always has, and always will. So what, if I feel like my life stopped on that day. It didn’t. But it changed forever, that much is true.
Now, I’m trying to learn to live on my own. Alone in the world. I can’t say it has been easy, but I’m getting along. Small steps.One at a time.
But, today I miss my mother, as I’m sure I will every month around this date for the rest of my life. Of course I also miss my father but I have had 20 years to learn to handle that loss. Return in 20 years from now and check how I handle the loss of my mother.
If I still run this blog 20 years from now. In June, I will celebrate 11 years of blogging. Amazing, I never thought I’d carry on this long.
Not surprising, I have run out of steam a bit. I barely manage one post per month now. I’m more active at Twitter and Tumblr.
That said, I still like my blog enough to keep it up and running, and I’m happy for the readers I have.
