Today, I want to contemplate the nature of and importance of silence as I acknowledge that we are one day from the two year anniversary of your death.
Two years ago, I spent nearly the whole day (the day before you died) at your side.
I miss you. Obvious and maybe goes without saying, but I don't I just copy and paste that same comment at the end of each of these blogs without really putting my heart into the comment?
I miss you, Mom.
I am going to post this today at the actual time of your death, 10:10 a.m. which for Blogger will be on Pacific time and show up as 7:10 a.m.
I will probably do this tomorrow, too, because I am thinking about you then as always, Mom.
So, here's some music, some of which acknowledges the importance of silence as Brian Eno reminds us.
But not all the music has silence............
Many suggestions by Warren Ellis......... Thanks Warren. You help enrich my life with music among many other things (like, you know, reading because, writer, obv).

- Rosanna Dean put me on to ALL THIS I DO FOR GLORY by Colin Stetson, an ancient, tribal thing.
- new Kahvi Collective podcast was good ambient
- as was the new Too Tired To Say Anything
- you all listen to The Monday Graveyard already, right?
- REMORIA-V - Heroin In Tahiti - sort of occult psychedelic trance? I like it.
- Dave Seidel - Bell Study. Just go with it and say good night.
Also recently picked up on Bandcamp:
We are all connected.
This last one, just because You Tube told me I would like it and obviously the picture caught my attention.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
