Do you believe?

{fray} has a special Fourth of July story today by Jon Pnim.

July Fourth brings many revelations. For some, it's all about beer and hot dogs. For others, it's a reminder of the ideals of America. For Jon Pnim, it's two days after he met a woman in the E.R. who left him shaking.

"I can see Good-by coming." It's not a perfect story, but it's a good story anyway.

The Packing Up Your Apartment Webcam

@ 08:46 PM | Filed Under: Stories (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

It's too bad my webcam died. If it were alive I would turn it on so that anyone else hanging out at home tonight (who happens upon this website) could partake in the excitement that is slowmotionsoozpacking. I think I need to increase my packing speed. One box per hour is probably not going to cut it.

Firsts and Lasts and the Moments In Between

@ 05:44 PM | Filed Under: Stories (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

The last Christmas with Michael and his family.

The first Christmas without my mom who passed away suddenly in March a few weeks before her 56th birthday.

The first time packing and moving in five years.

The last weekend in this apartment.

The first page of a new chapter.

But it's not the first and probably won't be the last time I wait until the absolute very last moment to pack. Anyone who sees me online tonight is hereby encouraged to remind me to get back to work.

Six Months

@ 03:17 PM | Filed Under: Stories (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

My mom passed away six months ago on March 20th. Earlier this week Dave Winer wrote about his uncle dieing of a heart attack and wondering if it leaves you conscious as the rest of your body dies. I wonder what my mom might have been thinking after her own heart attack.

It still seems strange to know that she won't be visiting Michael and I this Fall like she talked about doing back when we last spoke on the phone. Thursday night we attended a "Nebraska Party" that Michael's co-worker (and Nebraskan!) Kari co-hosted with her brother and other pals who moved to Boston from Nebraska. It was the first time I had been in a room full of Nebraskans in Boston. Kari even made homemade Runzas. We talked about how funny it was that certain things from "back home" weren't as interesting to us until we moved away. Such as Runzas and Cornhusker football. It was the sort of event where I would have called my mom. She would have been amused to know I was watching a football game.
