"Even in a world that's being shipwrecked, remain brave and strong."
--Hildegard von Bingen

I feel....okay today. Tomorrow I might be blindsided by my mourning again, but right this minute I feel okay. Okay enough to feel that it isn't awful of me to try to write in my blogs again. Okay enough to feel it isn't awful to pick up pieces of my old life and use them as I'm finding my way to the new one - a life in which one of my children has left not only the nest but the planet. Daughter Molly has chosen to go ahead with her own plans to move out and did so over a week ago. My life is indeed profoundly new.
No pictures to show just yet. And I am moving very slowly.
My goals right now in regard to dealing with the mundane tasks of moving toward an orderly life are to catch up on the paperwork, pay the bills for April, get that kitchen table cleared off and vacuum. Some laundry.
That seems quite enough for now.
