This post is not so much about art.
It is just a brief explanation of the gap in my postings during the last weeks of July and into August.
My mother died on Thursday, July 24th in Jefferson Healthcare Hospital. She suffered a concussion from a fall, possibly caused by a stroke, and died one week later. This happened just two weeks after an ER visit related due to probable pneumonia. She was nearly 91, and she was ready to go. Her life had become more limited and much less rewarding. She did not want to live with daily care, and she never had to do that. She lived and died (mostly) on her own terms.
