Has it been five years? She hadn’t felt the time pass. It was but a dream – one day simply follows another. Trains come and go – are caught and missed. Children are born and grow up – Kate missed all that, caught up in a dream of daily life - in a waking sleep, aware yet unaware of life passing her by.

Who knew that last year would bring pandemic death yet life in a baby granddaughter? Who knew this year would bring an endless groundhog day? Who knew that 1,878 days would pass between her last missive and this?

    Welcome back Kate. Congratulations on the granddaughter (we had a new one too almost exactly a year ago). Sad news on your loss too; the fact that you are not alone in that is by no way any consolation. Times are very tough and yet, despite a marked reduction in output, Drablr remains a rare joy for me. Please keep drabbling and posting.🤞
