time out

I got an e-mail from my sister yesterday saying my father had died at 3am that morning at the hospice, so am on my way back to Florida. I meant to write more on the interface question, have not been sulking in my tent just preoccupied, if anyone else has been expecting to hear from me they probably haven't for the same reason.

Oh, yes, most heartfelt condolence. It will no doubt be sad, tiring and complicated like many things in life, I hope travels go safely, I will be strongly thinking of you!

While there may be nothing I can say that will ease your loss, I want to express my sympathy and let you know you are in my thoughts.

Condolences from someone who knows you only from your novel and your blog and yet somehow feels you close in spirit.

Helen, I've been scanning my Google home page for your latest post via RSS feed, each time wishing the best to you and your family. To outlive a parent is to ascend to a peculiar loneliness. Hope you are feeling safe and borne up, looking forward to your return.
