I'm ok. Just quiet. Still digesting things. Several family deaths -- people in my extended family network of my childhood. Major figures actually -- like on the grandparent tier generation.
It's just the passage of time. These elders moved into the 80's a while ago, some of them crossing the veil now is not unexpected.
But it leaves me feeling the need to just be quiet and still inside. My soul feels ok, but my heart is heavy with some sadness and grief so I need to just let that blow on through.
I sent my godmother aunt a letter of comfort in this time. That helped some. That's another interpersonal skill to cultivate -- the skill to write good sympathy letters and not wimp out with a Hallmark greeting. But even that is better than saying nothing in a time of someone else's suffering. People need to be SEEN.
