I've been toying with the idea of shutting down this blog again. Since my dad died I haven't felt like writing, although I am actually writing a lot for the Trib now.
I've been especially low the last few weeks. The more time passes the more ways you discover how to miss a person. But this morning on a walk with the dogs I had this (obvious) epiphany: you keep the person you loved with you by doing some of the things that person did. Write notes of encouragement. Tell funny stories. Play cards. Plant flowers in the spring.
OK, Blog. I'll keep trying.
