Dept. of Closing The Book

Eulogy

I call this the department of closing the book, but I realize it won't truly be that. When people we love leave, closure doesn't mean shutting a door. It means making an agreement between between our heart and memory, that it's alright to forget for days and weeks at a time,that it's just fine to be happy and to go forward, because the ones we love want us to stay in the world.

In terms of this journal, it's closure, because this will probably be the last time I speak about Mum for a while. Thanks to all of you who listened since Oct. 27; who gave me hugs and offered sympathy and who took the time to listen as I talked about her. You people are treasures, plain and simple. Here is one last thing I offer you about Mary Glen - the eulogy I wrote and gave at her funeral. As Bob said, it was distilled in large part from the outpouring I wrote in the first minutes after I learned she had died. but the distillation made it a different thing.

Dept. of Slow Progress

Real ... slow ... progress ....

Gah. I thought I'd be able to finish Chapter 20 of Hearts & Moons before I went to bed. I was wrong.

Still, I may get it done before the end of the week. And that means I'll have finished at least two chapters this ... year.

I am such a frakkin' doofus.
