It’s been a hell of a week. Sorry for not posting more. I traveled down the coast to the funeral of a very close family friend and then spent time on Saturday holding the hand of my dying aunt (she passed away Sunday morning). I am about as worn out as a person can be (From lack of sleep? Chasing after an 8 year old? Death? MS? The presidential primaries?)… But the sun is shining, and one of my daughter’s favorite music teachers sent us this Spotify playlist with 7 different versions of If I had A Hammer. I’m listening to it right now. Everything’s gonna be alright.
