I have been an infrequent visitor here recently. Perhaps I will continue to be for a time; I don't really know. Unfortunately, real life has a way of sneaking up and beating you senseless for no apparent reason and without any warning. That is what has been keeping me away and preoccupied. Earlier this month, with very little preamble, my mother passed away. She meant the world to me, and I'm not quite sure how to recover from her loss. I was able to be with her for two weeks before she died and at the time of her death; that meant something. And I guess it's a blessing that it was swift instead of a long, protracted deterioration. But I feel gut-punched.
The world will return to order. Life will go on. It has a way of doing that too. But I thought, while I am having a moment of clarity in both intellect and emotion, I'd let you all know why I haven't been around.
