Cutting the Facebook Cord

I needed more psychic space,  more free moments each day, and to lose that twitchy must-check-it feeling - so I deactivated my Facebook page a few months ago. I miss some connections, some updates and the addictive rush of seeing notifications, etc.  However I really do feel freer and have more space opening up. (You can still MESSAGE me if you happen to miss me on FB.)

I will come back to my blog again more often I think.  In any case, here I am at the beginning of 2017...

One big thing in 2016. My mother died in November, at 90 years old and with lots of time with family in her final months. I was with her the last week each day and was there with brother Monty for her final breaths.  It was moving, profound and something every human will experience in some way (the departing, not the witnessing).

I find myself reaching for the phone...and then have a sinking feeling that she's gone.  So I talk to her in my mind.  She was a wonderful human...good, generous, witty, forgiving, smart and even stylish. Here's a photo from a couple of months before her death.

That's it for now...more to come.
