i’ve decided to leave the coast early today and spend a day in the city rather than allowing myself to wallow in solitary mourning any longer. i have spent the morning so far laying out the dozens of remembrances that have been posted at bob’s memorial site – and i will find a printer in the city to have those ready for the wake. reading the beautiful words of others has been simultaneously heartening and heart-wrenching but in all i am glad we provided that sharing space for people to gather their thoughts.
so i will be in vancouver tonight, going to vancouver island tomorrow afternoon and then in saanich and victoria until monday. anyone needing to reach me during this time can ring my cel as i will have that on me throughout. i am taking the laptop with me also so i’m hoping to keep up this journal in my absence.
take care in this most trying of seasons.
