Too Late

One of the reasons I came down now was to say goodbye to Drummaster's grandmother.
She has known me my entire life and will not be with us when I return. She is no longer responsive and the sun is setting.

I am a changed man since my dates with history. I know that the simplest of trips can lead to the end. I try and enjoy the moment as one never knows when the final chapter is written. Maybe someday I will write about my non PC thoughts of that day.
Maybe the time of honor, duty and self sacrafice are passe in todays world. After the holidays I might return to that subject

All most of us can hope for is to go with honor and in Peace.

I will make the best of my time in Gotham even if my intended purpose did not quite work out. Those of you who are friendly with drummaster can leave a note at his blog.

Merry Christmas to all the members of my blog community.

I should be back in VT Monday.

Oh Beaker-I am sorry, saying good-bye is hard enough, but the mind is still able to hear even if there is no physical response. I hope you took the opportunity to say what is on your heart anyway!
And being there for the family is very important, give my regards to Drummaster!

I try to keep short accounts both with my G-d and with my fellow man just for those life moments. Like you said you will never know when the final chapter will be written.

I'm sorry to hear this. Preparing to lose someone whom you've known your entire life is so difficult--and sad.
