My dad died last week, so I’m not going to do much writing. I’ll put up all the charts for consistency’s sake – making them is nicely mindless and cathartic – but I just don’t have a lot to say.

How Far I’ve Come

  1. My sincere condolences regarding your father’s passing. I can’t imagine I’d be in a mood to write much of anything, either.

    I haven’t seen my parents since before the pandemic started, but we’re driving 10 hours to see them tomorrow. We both live in areas with very few cases of COVID, and I don’t think it’s wise to wait until this whole thing is through to see them again. You never know how much time you or they will have.


    • Thanks Leif. I’m learning a lot both about estate planning and the unwinding of that plan (or lack thereof) that follows. Fortunate to have a supportive family and workplace but obviously still hard. Agree with importance of making every moment count. All the best to you and yours, and safe travels.
