There are some sad things that I need to write about. Things that I've been avoiding. I don't like to be depressing and I don't like to mope. But my throat is tight, and I need to process. Writing here does this. And it allows for support. And it ensures that the sad things that happen, don't go unnoticed. So here is some advanced warning that the next week or so will be sad around here, or however long it takes. Sad things give us a lot of perspective, and the ability to see all that is good in our lives as well.
