On August 10th, 2012, I lost my mother. Even though she’d been battling cancer for nearly two years, her loss was sudden and unexpected. This blog is what it is. It’s just something I’m doing, because I have to keep on doing.

I am a second generation atheist, which means that I never rejected any belief system. I simply never embraced one. My mom rejected hers, so if you have a problem with that, please take it up with her.

I am going to try hard not to over-think my posts. They will be raw and largely unedited. I expect that some will be angry and many will be sad. This does not mean that I am always angry and/or sad. It’s just how I felt at that moment in front of the keyboard.

Please feel free to say hi. Grief is isolating.
