Travel — 9 days

13-21 April, Florida to be with family and Remembering Mom.

Tom Bihn Small Cafe Bag — I’ve had this bag for years (and years) and it never disappoints. It holds just the right amount and rolls up flat into my backpack if I need it to. In this picture, it is holding a Manduka eco travel yoga mat, a water bottle, wallet, and iPhone.

Tom Bihn Synapse 19 — It slides easily under the seat ahead of me on every flight, including the very small regional planes. The teardrop shape makes maneuvering through the airports, the plane aisle, and the trains comfortable and quick. There is enough organization that I know exactly where everything is, but the big open main compartment swallowed my clothes (in packing cubes), laundry bag (scrubba + clothesline), and sundry bag.

Remembering Mom

JMH Feb 21, 1946 – March 29, 2021

Before: pain, suffering, confusion, illness.

Hospice: comfort, pain-free, transition, enough

After: grief, joy, hope, faith

To borrow from Auden (and my sister) Hear, o earth and trees: Today receive an honored guest. Janet May comes here to rest. Receive her, embrace her.

Hear, o sky and sea and sand: Today receive an honored guest. Janet May comes here to rest. Receive her, embrace her.
