Sunday morning

It is not often that I can be brought to tears, especially in public, but it happened this morning in Church. Nothing wrong happened--quite the contrary. The parish was observing All Saints and All Souls Day, translated from last Thursday and Friday. Our Rector preached on grief--You can hear what she said here. That got me thinking about Tom, and hence the tears.

It was not easy, but it is important to deal with these things. So on balance I do not regret missing colgaffneyis pleasant and successful expedition to Fargo. What happened here was important. It was difficult at the time, but I am glad I went through it.
