The Shape of Things to Come

Weather continues to be lovely here in Florida.

I am increasingly focused on my programming.

Currently I am working on an animated SVG logo.  If you don’t know what I mean, click on the TECH menu option above this post.

Bad news from NY:  my mother is not doing that well — very sad, but unfortunately part of life — of becoming very old.

It is difficult to deal with from a distance, but I am calling her every day in the hospital, and hope to see her in a few weeks — after I get my second COVID shot.

I’m getting the feeling that this year that things may suddenly and without notice be quite different going forward.

Meanwhile, I continue to get physically healthier — as I go on increasingly vigorous walks with the dog.

Yet I remain suspended in time, waiting, trying to remain calm over worries re my mother’s severely declining health, while sensing a change afoot.

The FLA era may be coming to some inevitable conclusion.

  1. à un certain point, il faut se dire, c’est la fin. mais effrayé, on s’accroche. pour nulle raison, sauf qu’il vaut mieux vivre que mourir — to paraphrase La Fontaine — no matter the exorbitant cost, or the pointlessness of hanging on as a vegetable. i will not be going down that road, when the time comes, and turn into a klingon (as in cling on). when it’s over, i hope i will have enough self awareness to know — before my mind fails, and i can longer tell the difference between living and becoming un pauvre bûcheron. it is heart breaking to watch your parents turn into people you no longer recognize. such a vibrant young woman, is how i prefer to remember her. now it is all about a self obsession with continuing long after there is nothing left to live for. harsh to say, but there you have it. Néanmoins, merci pour tes pensées.
