While I’ve blogged on other days when world events seemed to suggest that I should take a moment, today I find myself unable to.
Whether that is due to tragedy of a bridge collapsing south of the border or the very recent passing of a pregnant high school acquaintance due to a previously unknown health problem, I don’t know. Or perhaps it is due to both. The suddenness, the helplessness, the randomness in each instance and the different impact of each – one larger than I can comprehend, the other, the intimateness of a woman and her unborn child – I think has left me so much further dazed than whatever cold virus struck my head this past week.
Perhaps it is just time I call it a night.
