I've been reading old posts and I realise that the very act of blogging acted as a big catharsis in dealing with my eldest's death. The fact that I could write out my feelings has certainly helped. I also realise I have been blogging for quite a while now--more than 10 years now. The friends I have made through my blog I am grateful for, though I have met only one and that was a truly enjoyable meeting.[ A shout out to Onedia].
With all the new media around, one just gets lazy to blog I think, since everything else requires only a few words, or no words at all (just emojis)!! Hopefully I will come up with topics that I want to share and blog about to keep this blog going.
