One year ago

7AM - One year ago
One year ago, on September 20, 2010, just about sundown, my Son David took his own life.

I have been thinking about today for many months.  How should the one year date of David's passing be remembered?  I thought about returning to the place in the mountains where David spent his last moments.  I have been there before.  But it came to me that I really did not want to return there again.  I thought about casting David's ashes out where my Mother, David's Grandmother's ashes lie at Windemere Point near Fort Ross.

Finally I decided to do it in Santa Cruz, at a lovely place overlooking the Ocean.
