A Prayer for Us

I stopped writing. Time slowed down to microseconds while my dad breathed out the spirit left in his body. Death has no friends.

What I did instead was paint.

Riding to Zion

Painting was new to me. I dove into it, finding in it a way to put myself elsewhere in a place with no words.

Silence.

There’s just not enough of it.

I am writing again. And I am keeping this blog although I am going from a Premium account to the basic one. That probably means there will be ads. Yuck.

Thanks so much for reading this today. I’m sure you have lost a loved one too. This post is a prayer for us, the ones who are left behind.
