Last Writes

Tuesday, January 17, 2006
If you missed Sunday's post at The Grocery List Collection, go back and read it. It serves as a reminder that nothing about our lives is as trivial as we may think -- not even a grocery list that a family member finds bunched up in the ashtray of your car after you're gone.

Every once in a while, I find something in my Mom's handwriting -- usually something totally insignificant, like a phone number she wrote out. I always get a powerful jolt -- this feeling of connection and this awful pang of disconnect and loneliness at the same time.
