Today Laurence and I are going up to Fort Tryon Park to scatter Scarlett's ashes. Those of you familiar with Manhattan geography may know it as the spot far uptown that is also home to The Cloisters. It's a beautiful spot--maybe the most beautiful in Manhattan, at least in my opinion--and also where we scattered Vashti's ashes last year. Laurence and I like the idea of them being together again, and think it's the right place for our two beautiful girls.
Thank you again to all of those who have taken the time to reach out to us and share our grief. I can't begin to tell you how much strength your strength has given us.
Scarlett will live in our hearts forever, and I don't know that I'll ever be "done" mourning her. But after today I will return to blogging and writing about Homer, Prudence (the "made-up" cat--based so much on Scarlett!--who is the star of my next book), and the wonderful stories I hear daily from all of you. :-)
