I'd like to thank you, dear visitors, for taking the time to leave such genuinely warm wishes and kind thoughts clearly from the heart. Truly I am touched. It means so much to me, and especially during such dreadful times.
This is the first time that I have stopped by to check the blog since the day I last posted. I think it's just 2 days shy of a month already.
One week after the flood, my apartment still in a Hurricane Sandy state, I learned of an illness in my
immediate family that has left me devastated. I have been walking about in a surreal, zombie-like state and it's been quite debilitating; I took off several days of work due to "nerves" as I am more than
a bit fragile when it comes to my oft extreme anxiety. Ever since I have been sleeping, going to work and sleeping again exclusively. Mostly it's trying to sleep without much success. Working has been such a strain I that I am surprised that I have been able to pull it off. Thank goodness I have!
My passion for great music (and indeed the sharing of) has been a life raft more times than I can count - when I factor in the kind support from you, fellow musical explorers - with your insatiable appetite for delighting in discovery (like me!!!) that makes the spirit dance - it helps me to shed some of the darkness and find hope. Right now I am hopeful, and I am attaining at least some acceptance of my family's current situation. The possibility of remission does exist and that's what keeps me going; it's the vista I am creating, seeing....instead of Mt. Rushmore blocking out the sun I see Arcadian gardens before me - equally as powerful in their beauty.
I am planning to post again this week. I'd like to say starting tonight but I will see how the day goes.
Thank you once again everyone - let's keep the aural traveling alive no matter what.
