I'm so sorry, for all of us. Ame, I'm so, so sorry. Your beautiful, incredible love and spirit just shines through your words.

I too am "okay". Sometimes I feel like I'm just going through the motions. I find myself procrastinating a lot. My first due date is approaching, and I keep thinking about how I had "planned" this time- I'd stop teaching dance classes after spring break, I'd be lining up help for my office job, I'd skip this or miss that. The usual routine I'm doing now- work, errands, etc- is what I've been doing all my adult life- but now it just doesn't seem to fit right.

I teach dance classes for kids, and I've found that creating new dances for them, for their spring recital, has been an amazing comfort. They're so bright and sweet and eager to learn, and it helps to be using my creativity to make art.

I also read, a lot. Mostly novels. I like big epic novels where I can just disappear. I write in a journal, too, but not regularly.
