breathing space


Thank you all for bearing witness to Rhonda’s words. Some of you left touching comments, some of you sent touching emails, some of you liked her posts on Facebook, some of you tweeted about her. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to say. Some of you have told me that you have to read one post, then feel the need to go away for a while, coming back later to read more. There is no right way or wrong way to be here.

I haven’t spoken with Rhonda in 8 days. I don’t know what that means – I hope it just means that I haven’t called at a time when she can talk.

I had something I was going to post today, but now it seems appropriate to allow a day of breathing space instead. I’ll see you tomorrow.

Or the next day.

    I like that you made a space for breathing space! I need to start doing that in life. Without carving it out in a concrete way, it’s easy to forget. Thinking of you and Rhonda … hope all is well.
