why do I bother?

When I first read your blog it was a long time ago. I felt it was full of beauty and honesty in a world that could be grim.

Then when your Mary died, I felt sad for you. Sad in that unexpected way. Why would I feel sad for a person I do not know? It was your expression of grief that saddened me. Articulate and tender. I still cannot read what you write without tears coming to my eyes. The awareness of grief so poignant is difficult to comprehend but I understood in my small way.

I still feel sad but I am also happy to see you still here. Making difficult decisions and recording them. So, I would like you to bother. It means something to this unknown person on the other side of the world.

Linda, wherever you may be I want you to know that it's people just like yourself who "make" me continue to bother. It seems that just when everything appears to be gloomiest someone, somewhere, tells me why I need to continue - thank you Linda
