I began this post 15 days ago (or so) and tried to work on it several times, but ended up giving up. It has all been so disorienting and difficult. And now, 6 weeks after the fire, we are realizing how many opportunities we have missed to move things ahead — opportunities we didn’t know we had. There is learning here, alongside the hurt. Here is the post I started, and the finish that will be “good enough.” Tomorrow I will post of more mundane, happy things (if I can get some pictures loaded).
