Saying goodbye to Grandma. I knitted her an alpaca furry pillow to hug. My heart aches.


A day thinking about life and death. A day punctuated by small joys. The smile on my grandmother's face when I told her I loved her. When she said she was waiting for her husband to pick her up. When she winked at me.


I knitted Grandma some little socks because she has sores on her ankles and heels but her feet were cold. I made cookies. I made chicken soup, and she had some from a spoon. This is not easy. I had nightmares last night.


We arrived after an 8 hour drive at my grandmother's house. She is preparing to depart from this world. It is sad and surreal and makes me feel deep things. 
On the way here I found out I was awarded a grant I had applied for. I was elated!
