". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Blog Silence

I'm still here. Really. But I've had much more important things to do lately than blog. We spent the week packing and then moving my son to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he plans to be for the next four years, majoring in piano performance. This was our final look at him yesterday morning as he walked into his home away from home.

It was a wonderful week but a hard one. In time I will probably have some things to say about it. But for now I need to bring some order to the home front and help a few others in the house prepare for trips that they will be taking in the near future.

Blogging will return, so please stay tuned. Who knows--maybe some day I will even put some varnish on the Round Unvarnish'd Table.

That made my heart skip a little...sigh. It does get better when you adjust to a new "normal"...it really does, but it takes tears, time, and phone calls.

Thanks, Laura. I know you speak from experience and I do know it will get easier. Now that we have made it through the big shift it is already doing so. We are adjusting. I'm excited thinking about Trevor's first day of classes today! What an adventure for him! But yes, I can't look at that photo too long or else other emotions take over . . . .
