I had a post all thought out and ready to put to [er, keyboard? Laptop? What do we say now that we, as bloggers, virtually never put PEN to actual PAPER?] but came across a poignant chronicle that’s set me upon a reflective path tonight. And, in light of the news that’s traveled to certain corners of the blogosphere, anything silly just seems … silly.
Once upon a time there was a blogger named Punk Rock Mommy, who chronicled her battle with cancer — publicly, and with heartbreaking dignity. I did not “know” her. I hadn’t heard of her blog until today. But tonight I spent a good amount of time reading her words.
And they affected me.
Gave me a great big shot of Perspective.
But I’ll let you read them for yourself.
Although I still know very little about her, I do know there’s no question the world has lost a wonderful voice.
