It’s been very rough for me in these past few days.
I lost my Grammy Gloria, and it just saddens me.
She’s in that picture with my Granddad James Curtis Bland who passed away when I was 12 years old. In case, you’re wondering, I’m named after his middle name.
My Grammy lived to be 89 years young as she lived a full life being a great mother to my mom, aunt and uncle. Then eventually becoming a great grandmother to my sister, cousin, and I. She always wanted the best for me and she had lots of people who loved her.
I feel bad because this was unexpected and I just yearn to tell her that I love her and care about her again.
Grammy, may the angels welcome you in the great pearly dimension. Tell Grandad I said hello. You’re both reunited in a place where there’s no more suffering.
You may be gone on Earth, but I’ll never forget the amazing memories I’ve had with you during my lifetime.
From your loving grandson,
This has been a painful week so far and I’m still processing everything.
My Grammy died earlier this week and I want to do something in her memory.
I made a Katauta that’s dedicated to her, but I’m also going to put another post later today about how I’ve been feeling after the fact.
RIP: Gloria Bland. You’ve lived a great life and you are loved so much.
I wish you could come back and really show how much I care about you.
The ambivalence of forgiving or fighting back is such an arduous one.
Either way, I won’t be anyone’s whipping boy.
I finally made it to the halfway point of my little challenge.
Look at that, I briefly scream in this video. I had to restrain some of my rage in this performance.
The seconds are drained away as I stay ever diligent.
Not everything is well and me being sick didn’t help.
The apathy astounds me as bad things happen in this world.
I finally brought the ukulele again for this Katauta video. There’s way too much hatred going on especially over these past few days, and it needs to stop. Denial only goes so far, people.
I finally reached number twenty doing this Katauta 52 thing. I felt a bit positive today…
