Sunday pix and ashes

We picked up my sister’s ashes today. I was surprised at how heavy they were. They’re in a plain box for now, under a glass star and a collection of her crystals.

After three consecutive days at the apartment and an afternoon at the shelter to surrender Noreen’s cat, tomorrow will be a day for other things.

I’m reading the newest James Lee Burke, an author my sister turned me onto, so in a minor way it feels like connection.

At her apartment, I keep finding little papers here and there that seem to be messages.

The dolphin card found under her tools and a decades-old teaching notebook found open to words she might’ve said to me last month, “Take note of your judgmental qualities — please assess and evaluate.”

If you don’t hear from me for a while, it may be because my blog has used up its allotted space, whatever that means.

    There is just no easy way around any of this .. every step is a mix of emotions that toss feelings around like clothes in a dryer. Your feelings put into words being shared are nothing short of amazing. Sending mindful Blessings.

    Glad you’ve accomplished so much already with this task filled with emotions. I think Michelle got the space used up message before. I also have no idea what it means…nor do I understand what all I’ve had going in goggle plus (which seems to be going away) and I’m lost as to what is happening with blogger too! lol Will I even have a blog soon? If you do indeed have time away, enjoy!

      Thank you for that, Michelle. I watched it in its entirety first thing this morning. I was surprised by her emphasis early in the interview on the importance of storytelling.
