Look who has visited Tash’s blog in the comments section. No, I’m not talking about Julia and Niobe although that is also always an honor.
I have a fondness for the Edwards family. Not just because as I’ve made clear before I am rather left politically – John is “close enough” politically for me at the moment (although I won’t pretend I’m not more charmed by Obama). Not just because I admire deeply the meaning they have made from the loss of their son, without pretending it wouldn’t be infinitely better to have him here. And not just because I am actually rare in having a deep admiration and appreciation for malpractice attorneys. The second point though is obviously the most important one for this blog.
A blank blackboard. A very apt description of what I was left with after Natan died. What I’ve been most grateful for in the aftermath, however, so far has been my ability to restrain myself from refilling it. When I can do it, I will. Somehow I’ll reclaim the life I couldn’t imagine handling on that awful day 11 months ago.
