Tragedy is an Unattractive Word

tragedy…
Look at how gross this word looks, even without its connotations? Just say it out loud over and over, and like any word it will lose its meaning. Yet this word, to me, still looks ugly. Therefore I deem this word unattractive.

I very unfortunately lost my mother last night, and I suppose this is my way of dealing with it currently…
This is also the way that I am telling my readers, all of you, that I will most likely not be posting for a long while.
I’ve lost the written voice due to this hardship and I have no idea when it may come back to me. I am confident that despite this I can rely upon my co-authors – the brothers and sisters I can always count upon – to keep posting on my behalf and for the sake of keeping this blog current and interesting for you all.
I think I’ll end this with an entry from Thesaurus.com of their entry for tragedy, because I will damn well be sick of hearing that word over and over in the next coming weeks.

Thanks for letting me talk, I love you all.
I’ll miss you mom…LuzOb

    I literally do not know what to say… I’m sure anything I could you’d be sick of already… But you have my love and sympathy brother.
