Friends who don’t read this blog ask me if I’m still going to the cottage. As I wrote in my book, “Very Grateful: The Story of My Hundred Year Old Mother and Me,” part of moving on after Mom died was moving on from the cottage.
“My cottage-by-the-sea days, which I enjoyed for five winters, are over. What I learned during that time about silence, solitude and simplicity I now carry with me wherever I go.”
What I wrote is still true, but some days, like today, I miss walking the beach and watching the sunrise.
