FUCK. THIS. YEAR.

I'm picking up my parents from the airport tomorrow morning - they're back from six weeks in Japan, they left three days after my mother retired, and at her retirement party a chorus of co-workers sang a filked version of "So Long Marianne" (my mother's first name is two syllables starting with M, and her middle name is Ann). Leonard Cohen is hugely important to my mum, and my sister and I were texting this afternoon with the news, neither of us wanting to tell her. Music, including Cohen, was a bridge between my mother and me during times when a lot of other connections went up in smoke, so there's that, but talking to her about it means talking to her about her mortality and after this week I just want to put my head under a duvet at the mere thought of it. I am selfishly hoping she finds out somewhere before they board the plane.
