Seasoned Just Right!

I've been gone a looong time and it shows.

My sabbatical, so to speak, was to take care of some business that required my full attention. This year has been painfully difficult from December 2013 to November 2014.

I've had a number of deaths to occur, including that of my own mother in March 2014. In fact in 1 yr there was 28, friends, family, colleagues to have fallen asleep in death. There was hardly much time between to breathe.

Yes I am important, however, these people mattered...
Now it is the time for I, too, to also matter.
