My Scribblings on Sunday: Starting With … Recently

The Last Two Weeks On My Blog

This fortnight’s posts!!

On the Home Front

Hectic, in its own way, even without scrambling to work on my AtoZ posts. Trips to more college campuses, discussions and then more discussions to narrow it down to the ONE. And yes, we are done, as of a few hours ago! Finally! Whew! Sigh of relief…! More to come on this later.. And my son and I got the first dose of our Fauci ouchies…

And while this was happening, I heard the news of a favorite uncle’s passing. Considering the circumstances (he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer just a few weeks ago) and given who he is, it brought back all the memories of when my dad passed away in 2018. This uncle of mine: he was a master of words, an English professor, a truly larger-than-life persona, one who will be missed by multitudes. I loved that I could discuss books, reading, and writing with him for as long back as I can remember. Every trip to his town during the holidays would end up with me scouring his bookshelves, never mind that as a little girl looking in the shelves of a professor, I was bound to find books beyond my ken. But he never stopped me and instead would give me recommendations. He was a master of words, and now, words fail me as I look at the void he left in my heart..

But he left behind an enormously magnificent legacy. One that has inspired me for ages, and I hope will continue to inspire me for years to come.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your uncle. One of the wonderful things Mister Rogers did was to ask people to stop and think of people who made us who we are. I can see that your uncle was a person who shaped you into the person you are. So sweet to remember this man with so much fondness.

    I eagerly await hearing about the college decision.

    And I look forward to seeing your next poetry post!

  2. I am so sorry to hear of your uncles passing. It’s a challenging time to lose a loved one and can relate to the struggle as my father in law passed away just before Easter. Stay strong momma.
