Missing. Not Dead Yet.
« on: November 27, 2019, 05:35:17 am »

I've had quite a month, during which I neglected TMM. Fortunately, Digital Ocean is so reliable that it's all still working. And my backup scripts continue to save our bits daily, with a week of archive.

I had my periodic crash, a week in bed, bingeing Amazon and/or Netflix. Then my mother died, and though not consciously distraught (she was ninety with progressive disability from Parkinson's), I couldn't function for ten days, so more time binging video.

When I finally surfaced, I was better than before it happened, and realized that I needed to return to regular daily meditation, having fooled myself into believing that my constant remembrance was sufficient. Not yet.

I had a glorious five-day trip to Cheyenne (Wyoming) to put Mom in the ground, and a couple of days in Boulder (Colorado) with my daughter, while she checked out Naropa University. I'm working on a trip write-up, and will post a link here when it's up.

Time to do a little work on the Beatles tune, "When I'm Sixty-Four", which I'm learning on piano and guitar, so I can play them in April, when I'm sixty-four.

Well that's wonderful Bill.  I was beginning to think that something awful had happened to you (I guess it had really) but you're back with us and that's great.

I have a tragedy of my own now.  My husband has esophageal cancer, and it has progressed to the liver, so his time is - I guess - pretty short.  I'm struggling to cope with it all and all the medications that he has to take, plus him not being able to eat anything is a huge pain.

Still I'm glad to know that you're well and back in the land of TMM.

We wanted to return on Tuesday, but Thanksgiving travel was starting then, and the tickets that were available were expensive, so we flew out on Monday. Just beat the storm, or we would likely have been there until the weekend.
