my grandmother died yesterday afternoon.
she was very old and it was a good time for her to go, but we will miss her and we are sad.
meantime we are still going out for new year's eve, because it will be beautiful and life goes on.
i will meet up with my family at one of the concerts and we will hug and cry a little and say that we love each other and we will watch with no small affection the party going on around us.
new year's eve is a dark kind of party anyway; with the deep cold of long winter nights, the death of the old year, and the small bright hope for our futures.
i will be wearing my famous hat and scarf.
and in the meantime, here's today's download for you.
be well, my friends.
may your sorrows pass with the old year, and may your joys increase in the new.
