Today is my first day home from the funeral and dealings of my father’s passing.
I started the laundry.
The mundane things of life comfort me.
I pulled a towel from the dryer and wrapped myself up in it.
I pretended it was my father’s arms around me.
I felt comforted in the warmth.
That is about all I have done all day….except to walk outside…
The world to me seems to be set in fast forward motion.
Everyone is buzzing so fast they are in a blurrrrrr….
I am set in slow motion, nearly at a stop
and nature seems to understand my pace.
