Another re-emergence and update

Hello again.
While anticipating growth in the year, it has been hard. Growth does involved challenges. The biggest challenges were the death of my mother and the death of a dear dog, Bella, shortly thereafter. Other deaths of family friends and family have occurred. There has been much loos. It is all unpleasant. Death by nature is an end, it hurts, it is hard, and leaves and enduring hole. When there is end, there is and beginning which by nature brings uncertainty. Moving forward occurs one step at time, preparing and taking steps as they play out. The key is to keep finding a way to move forward and progress each day, including periods of rest.
