It’s getting better. I have a stack of cards people have sent me (thank you). I have been reading a great many kind emails (ditto). I have a box near my desk that came filled with things to cheer me up: tea and mix CDs and books and pretty soaps and other stuff (thank you Michael and Marianne and Jenny and Patty). I haven’t emptied the box completely; I might still need to have it around. Everything helps: the road trip to Michigan; the memorial service; returning to work.
I’ll be getting back to posting this week. Thank you all for your patience and everything else.
