How strangely doth the mind work ...
I've been feeling weary. Listless. Not quite "in or of this world" ... all day.
Just noticed the date as I closed out that last entry.
Today is March 11th. It would have been Rick's birthday -- had he lived to celebrate it. Has it really been ten years?
I'm making progress in a small way. Ordinarily I would have been aware much earlier in the day -- or anticipated a renewal of the pain for at least a week leading up it.
I suppose one never really lets go of a son whose life was cut short.
In a few hours it will be March 12th, and the memory will again fade and life will go on as before.
