The new normal

I'm going back to work, at least for a few hours, today. There is just too much piling up there.

Step one in figuring out what our new "normal" will look like from here on in, I guess. Going to take it as slow and as part-time as I can, for now.

Yesterday was a tough day. The world hasn't slowed down; Christmas is on the minds of most everyone. I just can't get there right now. It's just too hard.

I've said elsewhere on the web that I need to transition from a public and shared mourning period to a less public time of grieving. Grief is not a spectator sport, so it may be pretty quiet here for awhile. It needs to be that way.

Absolutely. Thinking of you and your family.

"one day at a time", as they say ... though I'm sure sometimes it's one moment at a time.

do what you need to, when you need to, and know that you and your family continue to be in mine and many others thoughts.

call if if I can ever help more directly, much much much love to you...
