It is hard to post right now. With Anne Marie gone from the blogger world, I feel the missing piece. I cannot look forward to her comments here and on other blogs, let alone her own posts. And it feels wrong to just pick up and move on by posting about other stuff. (That’s me being me. Not a commentary on what others should feel or do.) Her loss feels both unreal and palpable to me. I do not have many friends left in this world, so the loss of one impacts me – heart, mind, and soul.
So, I’m taking a break to deal with my own stuff. To acknowledge her passing for more than one day or post. Out of respect for her spouse, whom I hope knows some of us do still grieve with him, albeit it silently, separately, and distantly. I am saying good-bye and letting go. It just takes longer for some of us.
Be well. And tell people you love them if you do.
Every fucking day.
