I’m back to posting again. Thank you to my guest posters.


My dad passed away so suddenly and unexpectedly only a few weeks ago. I’m still reeling from the loss.

At the same time this has made me realize how important it is to appreciate every moment in life, not to be cliche.

I had everything and didn’t know it.

From now on everything good will be bittersweet. My dad won’t be there to share it.

Still, there are many people in my life who will be there and who I’ll be there for.

There is so much to be hopeful for and I’m going to live each day with that appreciation, love and knowledge.

Life is fleeting, beautiful, painful and most of all worthy of honor.

    thank you so much Abby. I know that when we met, shortly before it happened, I told you how close Henry and my dad were. Hopefully he’ll remember the love.

    Thanks so much for the comment. It’s really really hard. I have a lot of good work related things happening right now and I’m about to move so I’m keeping busy to keep my head out of a dark place. All my love. Sam
