I never quite know how to respond to the “about me” option. I am a person with all that entails. I have good days, I have bad days. I’m mostly sad wearing a smile mask. I suppose as I move along in this blog thing, more will be revealed to you and to me. I would say, first and foremost, I survive. Frankly I’m learning that’s not enough.
Why this venue
I am navigating the treacherous path of grief, having had my daughter, my only child, stolen by cancer. I am trying to find purpose and some semblance of joy again. Perhaps that’s the point of this blog. I do have a couple of side kicks; girls who love car rides and never ask, “Are we there yet”. Daisy and Scarlett, like me enjoy the exploration before the destination. This is going to be some kind of exploration with no particular destination in view.
I have another side kick, a shadow. My beloved daughter is with me always. Knowing this gets me through the days and nights. I tell her everything.
