Website as of today
After three-and-a-half years, I've waded through enough of my own history and gathered enough energy to start bringing this website into shape. As I sift through the endless cartons and folders and thoughts, as I throw away and sort and define, it takes shape. Enfin.
My mother died on 31 August 2016.
She was 91. For some time prior to that, she was in hospital near her home in Virginia, and I telephoned with her almost daily. At her age she was not adept at Skype or social media with their passwords, and I was only able to transmit images to her via this website, that was at the time under construction. I took the picture of her above at her home a couple of weeks before she died. Although we had a terribly conflictual relationship, I cared very much about her, and I leave the blog posts below as memento.
(My migraine and I are resting in the room next door.)
