We were never being boring

A brief post to explain the relative rarity of posts in this blog lately.
Recent times have been challenging for all sorts of reasons, but these challenges definitely culminate in my father being in critical condition and treated at in intensive care facility for more than a month now. We do not know how long it would take, but one thing is clear: he is not going to get out of this one.
While these events offer inspiring opportunities to discuss father to son relationships or philosophise on euthanasia related matters, I find the stress too overwhelming to offer my wit on these pages. Concentration is hard to come by these days. Interestingly, I find the stress to be good at consuming spare time, too.
For now, expect fewer postings here. Stress seems to be more effectively relieved through movie reviews and photo processing.

I was in similar situation 7 years ago with my father. Unfortunately I didn't make it on time to see him. I wish your father "Refua Shlema".

I am sorry to hear that. Losing a parent can be devastating even when you are an adult. Hopefully your family is pulling together unlike my husband's family who are tearing each other apart at the moment over the death of his father. It is a highly emotional and exhausting experience. At a time when you think people should clearly see what really matters it seems to bring out the worst in people. Although I suspect a lot of that is driven by fear and anger. Wishing you all the best in this difficult time.

Thanks. As for the family, the crisis catalysed some reunions with relatives that didn't speak to one another for decades; on the other hand, it's driving further wedges between others. Don't get me started about bringing out the worst in people (at least not in a public forum such as this).
