My Dad died on Saturday.
I couldn’t say anything before because we wanted to contact all our relatives first.
I mean, the chances that any of them would see this blog are practically zero but still.
Dad had been unwell for a long time but I honestly thought he would go on forever, perhaps getting more and more frail and more and more curmudgeonly but hanging on despite all odds.
But I was wrong.
And now I feel like I misunderstood something fundamental about the world and I haven’t quite recalibrated yet.
It is positively disorienting.
