by the sea

It’s been another rough week – will things ever settle down? Dad is not doing well at all and seeing him in so much pain, or else so drugged up that he’s incoherent, leaves me with a pit in my stomach as I stay helpless to relieve his misery. It’s at times like this that it seems like being there couldn’t possibly be enough, although everyone tells me that it does make a difference.

It’s way past my bedtime and I’ve been sitting here at the computer emailing family… And fiddling with a different theme and name for this blog. As if that would change anything. Edge of the Sea suddenly sounded so sharp to me, like the edge of a razor, or the edge of doom, or the edge of night. By the Sea sounds so much softer and comforting. I simply couldn’t rest until I changed it.

None of life’s strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It’s not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

  1. All things must pass away…but it’s so hard for us to watch anyone suffer. By the Sea does seem softer. I will go change it on my blogroll, OK? Big hugs, friend! (Would it help to play another Scrabble game some time?)

    1. You’re so sweet and kind, Kathy! Thanks so much for understanding and for updating your blogroll and for the big hugs… 🙂 I had to laugh about Scrabble – I’ve been neglecting my turns with Janet and her mom. Better get over there after posting this…
