You may know from my other blog (Dementia-Mama-Drama) I'm going through the grieving process with Mama & her rapid decline - she has Dementia & Myelodysplasia.
I've realized that since moving to Suburbia, grieving ain't just for dying. I finally understand that I've been going through another kind of grief, the grief of leaving my city, NYC. I now see the common thread of holding on & letting go, whether it's someone or somewhere that you love dearly. I just gotta take it one day at a time & try to deal with it as best as I can.
Mama & I always speak of "going home" & I realize they're two totally different, yet comforting & loving places. For her, it's "somewhere over the rainbow" & for me it's returning to my rainbow... NYC.
