Still Alice is sitting idle in my reading list and until now, I haven't had time to read it yet. Hmm, I guess this is the sign eh?

It is coming upon the first anniversary of the death of my SO, and I am so very sad...I will probably try to read as many of these as I can...if you are of a more spiritual nature, I highly recommend A Grief Observed, by C.S. Lewis, written after the death of his wife. It's a slim little volume, reading it has really helped me.
