So here I am,
looking out, wondering.

How to do this?

A big question - how to do this?elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I know it can be done, but

I can do this,elsa - word, story, image idea music person
but it takes a lot of doing.

It's easiest in the morning. elsa - word, story, image idea music person
Everything seems possible then.


What do you see when
you see me, I wonder.elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I keep trying. I'm not sure
what will happen. But over
and over again, I keep
trying - because something
in me doesn't give up, not
forever anyway.

On my way to my mother-in-law's funeral, I so much feel
the absense of deep grief. I regret, most of all,
the ways she was so long closed to so much. But no deep grief.
Diary Blogs. Blog Journals. Inner Self Blogs.

DECEMBER 7, 2007


Something is wrong - and it is the absence of grief, real deep grief, the grief that grips so I cannot stop crying. I haven't often felt such grief, but I know what it feels like.

Here I cannot believe she is dead. I wish she were alive still. But the feeling of loss is muted. I feel her small body, her frailness. I feel, for a moment, her fragility - and also her closedness. Much feeling in her, intensity, passion, love, anger.

But something is wrong. Partly it is me. I grew up with a mother frozen from many of her deep feleings - too many hard things lived through in childhood. I am in many ways like her - usually better at taking care of than feeling caring.

Yet when my father died, I felt him around me for years - can faintly feel him now, very faintly. With her, I feel absense.

I have been feeling this absense of grief since she died. I feel regret - regret I did not talk to her more these past months since coming back from Provence in June, when I was with her for over a month, including the more than three weeks she was in the hospital. That's what I feel most strongly. Regret. Guilt. Philippe talked to her regularly. I talked with her every now and then.

It shouldn't have happened that way. But on the phone she was always brief with me. It felt stiff - unlike in person, when she would talk and talk.

Regret - that is what I feel most.

Yet I know that the last few years brought her many good things with her son - more time than in decades.

I want my own life to go much better in a deep way.

As always, welcome into my world.
