I had begun fasting on the new calendar
so I could celebrate with friends in Ottawa
since I am not able to be with my family.
We have a nice dinner together.
I got to hold my godson.
I realized that
today I have to reserve as a quiet day.
Still recovering from my chest cold
and realized I needed a day
to remember my Oma
as I am still
processing her passing
from life to life.
I am greatly looking forward
to the panakhyda for her this coming Sunday.
