I have so much to write about.
Blog ideas flowing like a waterfall in my head.
But my energy is dampened by two recent deaths this year. I need time to recover emotionally. One death was a hard one. Gawd I hate those.
The kind where you realize that humankind is a damaged unit beyond the simple concept of compassion. We euthanize suffering animals. Yet we allow our loved ones to die in agonizing suffering. We don't all drift off to sleep and die peacefully in our sleep.
The last one was emotionally very hard. Their grown child was there with them. Beyond compassionate attentive care to the dying, I supported and offer care to the living. How do you make the worst night in someone's live, less worse?
You don't even try.
You listen and hold them and just be there for this moment in their lives.
Then go drive home bawling your eyes out.
My goal is blog each day I'm off this week and see if I can't leave some great words of wisdom or other such nonsense in cyberspace.
