... I'm Baaaaaack ...!

It was a very intense drive back to the Chicago area, indeed. The U.S. is huge and beautiful and very much worth seeing. The longer version of my journey can be found here. The short version is that I drove out, extended my one-week stay to two, was able to be with my mother when she died, and drove home again. I'm very inspired by all of your progress to finish up July, start August and jump into September. First I have to catch up on some paying work, though. You'll hear from me again soon.

Good... stick with it (and us)! Are you ok? It can be such a huge life upheaval to loose a parent....

Yes, I'm definitely okay. Grieving is part of life, and it will keep bubbling up from time to time, as is natural. I cry a little bit (or get angry... whatever) and then go on. The whole story of the trip is on my blog, and, while I'm still processing all of this, I find that I'm becoming inspired in some interesting directions, both artistic and personal. Resuming the beading is very, very good for me.
