On the evening of May 13, 2006 my father died unexpectedly at home. Although more than a week has now passed, it feels as if time has stood still.
My email is out of reach, I have not checked a blog, even newspapers go unread. The rhythms of daily life have been upended. My own family has relocated to my parents' home hundreds of miles away. My siblings and children bring consolation and joy. Legions of friends and family have offered support through gestures big and small. But there is an enormous hole in our hearts that time has only slowly begun to heal.
I will continue to update this blog and hope to resume daily blogging later this summer. For now however my focus is outside the blogosphere.
