At a loss

I’m at a loss. I don’t know what to say.

A tough spot for a writer.

My brother passed away last week at the age of 53. My head spins with the loss, and with the logistical challenge ahead of me. I ask myself, “Where is the inspiration in this?”

The only solace I can find is, sometimes we are at a loss for words, and that’s OK.
