Hello and hello


It's been a while...

My father passed away last May. He was eighty-five. He had a series of strokes five years ago that changed all our lives. The last few months have been, I don't know, like walking through a thick fog, heavy and slow. It's been hard to focus on anything and I haven't felt like leaving the house much.

But my family is very close and we tend to hang pretty tight together. I also have a lot of wonderful friends. They're the good kind of friends, who call or take you for coffee and don't seem to mind much if you can't finish a sentence. So I am very rich in that regard.

I've been trying to make something creative every day. I find it comforting, like listening to music, or a good walk. And I wish the same for you.


Best thoughts,
