The nearly month-long hiatus I’ve taken from this pesky website is due almost entirely to my grandmother, Sybil Dickinson, who passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 80. I’ve been thinking of how to acknowledge her passing and the influence she had on my life (both directly and through my parents) and move on with my seemingly endless stream of quasi-witty observations. I’ve decided this moment of bloggy silence has served the purpose as it has allowed me to dwell on it internally. I will just say that she was loved, and she will be missed.
