For those of you who follow my blog, I’m back.

After a death in the family and a rough few weeks, I find that sitting back down to a “blank” computer screen may be good therapy.

Tempted as I am to recite the drama of the past month, I will refrain.  Suffice-it-to-say, the phrase “family dynamics” is an ever-changing palette; sometimes light; sometimes very dark indeed.

My initial reaction to death: a time to come together, in love, for the person passed.  The reality is often a wide chasm created by grief and fear.  Isolation is the result, mostly for those who need company the most and the gap widens.

In the end, there is no way to cross it without reaching out a hand.
