"Tonight, I am in Chester, Virginia and 963 miles from home. The driving is almost enjoyable. I've learned to stop often, take walks at the rest areas and a short afternoon nap there with the car running and the doors locked. . . . . and Karl's handicap sticker displayed.
I'm listening to Eckert Tolle's "The Power Of Now" again and I'm in agreement with him. The death of my beloved Karl is making more sense to me now but the heartache is still so very raw. So often during the day I want to share something with him and of course I'm reminded anew that he's not with me any longer. Shortly before he died that sad night he said " Nora, your life will be better" but it isn't and I don't see how it could ever be."
