Grief really opens us up to raw quiet, and shambles, depending on the time of day....it always spurs more life at a future date, I know this, even though it is rather horrific in the early stages. I don't know what else to with it except share it...I suppose that might be a drag to read about day in day out...or scary for those who are on the cusp of losing their elders.

I told someone the other day, don't try to prepare for mother's death because you can't -  just be with her in your own way as much as you can now.
