I haven’t posted in a very long time, obviously. Why? Well, in January of 2019 my mother had a stroke. She seemed to recover, but with some bad effects. After a few months, things got worse and in November of 2019, she passed away.
This site’s original intention was for me to communicate with my family (mostly my parents) as I had moved pretty far from them. It feels like once they were unable to continue reading it, I stopped writing. I tried. I composed things in my head all the time. But it never quite made it to my fingertips.
So, I’ve been trying to decide what to do next. This site is just over 23 years old. Maybe it’s time for a change. I might just archive the old content because who wants to read 19 year old me faffing about needing a dining room table. Perhaps I will start talking about some of the more rare and interesting aspects of my job. I find myself alone on an island quite more often than I ever thought I would.
Whatever I decide, I’ll still have this site. I just don’t know what she will become.
