cynthia1960: me from Wiscon Chronicles v. 3 (Default)

[personal profile] emceeaich posted the bulletin about my mother's death a couple of weeks ago, and I've been off in radio silence. I'm still processing this.

However, hearing that we've lost Suzette from [personal profile] james_davis_nicoll and [personal profile] supergee is making me think more about eldering and communication as well as musing about losing a parent.

I treasure her fiction. The images of the elder linguist women in Barren Houses plotting subversion with hands busy working fiber arts and sending messages coded in recipes, and the wisdom and humor of the Ozark Grannys are priceless. I only hope I can age like that.

Her non-fiction books about nonviolent communication are also soooo useful. I need a refresher course on this. And of course, reading her LJ posts on [livejournal.com profile] ozarque was fascinating. I've missed hearing from her since dementia made her go silent. As a commenter on James Nicoll's LJ noted, it is so sad that somebody who was so insightful about communication had to lose that ability at the end of her life. My condolences go out to George Elgin and her family and friends.

Give her eternal rest, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
