An Unfixable Dish

If life was like cooking I'd have it made. Need things to cohere? Add eggs. Need it lighter? Whip air into it. Want it richer? Add cream. Ruin a dish? Toss it and start over. But there's no fixing life, and few chances to toss it all and start over.

This week has been awful. As I told Boomer tonight, I got nothing. He asked if I'm numb. I wish I was numb. What I am is a deep murky pot of sadness, and so submerged that it's all I can see. So until I can rise, I'll be quiet.

Stay well, everyone.

I understand how you feel, Laura. You have been through a very difficult week and you need time to grieve and get things sorted out.

I am surrounded by so many people I love that are having dire health problems and that lump in my stomach that is full of fear and anxiety is working overtime. Life is never easy.

Take care dear friend. You are a strong lady and people are looking to you for the help they need. You must, though, find some time for yourself to heal.

I can only second what Arleen has said so well. Recuperate, Austan. It's important!

I also thank Arleen for saying what is in my heart. Take care of yourself (and I know that is an alien concept). We will be here to welcome you when you are ready to return.

Life can be suffocating at times. Take a little time for yourself. Know that others are thinking of you. If you can bring yourself to it, try to do something creative, it brings hope and healing. Sending hopeful, healing and peaceful thoughts your way.

I'll just add my well wishes to all the other ones. Know that you are loved. Know that this, too, will pass. Take care of yourself.

Much love to you.

Dear Laura,

I have been discreetly in the background over the last little while.

I will echo the sentiments of your other caring friends. Please find some time out and work this through. Know that in the background, you have much support and love. Bless you and may peace be with you.

In kindness,

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry. Hang in there.
