Brief Update


Over the last two weeks, between making arrangements for my mother's funeral, and organizing more home care for my father, and talking on the phone to relatives etc, I have had very little time or energy left for "myself". I also find it difficult in the midst of a situation like this to transfer my thoughts spontaneously into the English language, because everything that is happening is so tied up to (Swedish) cultural traditions and social context. I hope that maybe in a week or so I'll be able to begin to "catch up with myself" a bit…? (The funeral is tomorrow.)
