precious and fleeting

I have been off FB for a bit. My dad passed on Monday. The coyotes were howling up the canyon right as I got the call. The sun settled on that day slowly.

I am back in RI now; in the massive snow drifts, the big ol’ house (built in 1904), going through stuff in the house, in my head. I have shared much on FB, so many of you have followed this arc. it has been a long and challenging last year. Dad, what a guy.

Death brings both some kind of peace and some kind of unsettlement. Ah, this life we skip lightly through. Precious and fleeting; every part of that phrase is ringing in my ears now.

Big change. long journey. I am in that, moving there.
