For Now


I had really hedged about posting this news, but several of the people who have come to know me through my blog had emailed me, asking why I hadn't been heard from recently. I am sad to report that my father died rather suddenly, and I buried him this week. I had thought about writing on some of the things I have experienced, but it seemed crass and unseemingly, so I have stayed silent while absorbing not only the loss of my father, but the knowledge that I no longer have parents.

I will return to writing on my blog shortly, once my mind unthaws and functions again. Thank you to all who have checked in with me and voiced concern.

My condolences as well. You've been missed here, but blogging is not important when compared with loved ones.

Can you give a supercomputer a hug? Take the time you need, and then take a little more. Come back if you feel like it, and don't feel pressured to write about it here unless you want to.

I am so sorry, Cube. I have been wondering for so long about your absence, and came tonight to see if there was word from you.

I know how much the loss of a parent can diminish a spirit. I know, too, that strange feeling when you suddenly find yourself orphaned - a strange spot no matter your own age or space in life. I sincerey hope that, in the midst of your grief, there is celebration of a life well-lived.
