The Hand of Grief

image

Grief is a strange thing, indeed.  It shapes our existances in so many fashions.  Grief alters, reroutes, splinters, and regroups.  It comes in many disguises.  It ebbs and fades, but is a constant partner once you’ve met it, until you draw your last breath.  Grief is there in some way or another.

Of A Barn Raising…

The Sister & I at my Aunt’s Wedding – October 1995

I didn’t mention it, but my aunt came to visit last week, just for the day.  We don’t see her as much as we used to.  I won’t go into all the why-fors, as they stem from sad circumstances.  So, while we’re slightly estranged from each other, there’s no bad blood, so to speak.

But, she did stop for a short visit and The Sister & I were elated to see her.  It was a good visit.  She sent The Sister a thank you note for a painting she was given, and in the note she supplied a link to a magazine that her house was set at as a feature last October.  It’s really that house I want to talk about, because well… I helped to build it.

Getting Back To Business

My computer went kaput a few weeks ago, and today I’m the proud owner of a newer model.  It’s quite untraditional, but I think that it suits me rather well.

I have an iPad that I inherited, and was able to find a bluetooth keyboard, with rather good ratings, over at Best Buy today… on super sale!  It’s really nice.  Sort of like a futuristic typewriter, rather than a desktop or laptop.  I’m really pleased.

More importantly, I’m really pleased to be able to write again; to type.  Pretty ecstatic, actually,  so, prepare for some blog posts in the coming weeks.

So, what have I been doing with my time?  Let’s take a quick look, right?

I’ve been watching the BBC documentary show, The World’s Worst Disasters, and well, I learned something, which I suppose is the point of a documentary, right?
