#NaBloWriMo ~ not much to say at all...

I can't think of much to say. I learned today that there are war vets who suffer a kind of PTSD called, "The Vow of Silence." They don't talk about their experiences because it is too much. My grandfather did not talk about what he experienced in WWII. I wonder if it was a choice or if he just couldn't talk about the trauma because it would be right back in his face. It made me cry to think of what he experienced but couldn't or wouldn't relate. I don't know if he ever talked to my grandmother about it all in private. She has been gone for 30 years and he has been gone for 50. I can't find out from either one of them. I know that he saw ugly things in the war but don't know how the experience affected him. I do know that until he died from cancer and was sick from same that he lived a good life that he enjoyed. That gives me a sense of peace about him.

I am named after my grandfather so he always feels extra close to me as does his wife my Meema. I loved them both so very much.

It has been a quiet day at SageMoon Cottage just some stuff going on around the house. Nothing to write home about. Tomorrow we might go to the DollarTree for some provisions. Doesn't THAT sound exciting? LOL!!!

I bid you goodnight.

Ciao!
