Taking a Break After the Death of My Mother

Early one Saturday morning about a week after last Labor Day, September 2022, my mother called me and asked if I wanted to go down to Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch, New Jersey with her. I had other plans that day, but something told me to break them and go with her down the shore. And so I did.

It was a glorious early-September day: Warm and sunny but not quite the strength of a July or August sun. The suffocating summer crowds on the Jersey Shore had emptied out after Labor Day.

We had a terrific day--Went in the warm water, talked about life, relationships, and moving on from adversity in life. 

Five months later, in early-February of this year, she was diagnosed with advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer. She died earlier this evening. 

Over these last several months I have done my best, between taking her to and visiting her in the hospital daily, and then caring for her in home hospice, to not let it impact my work too much. I understand every family and every relationship is different.

But with my mother being a widow the final twenty-one years of her life it was extremely important to me that she was taken care of properly in the end--I just could not live with myself otherwise. 

I will be taking off a few days now entirely from work to mourn her death and tie up her affairs. 

After the break, I will be back to lead the Market Chess family into a strong remainder of 2023. I will be back to my old self of diligent work, high level prolific output of content, responsive to readers and subscribers.

I will be back to charting multiple markets multiple times per day.

I will be back to daily and weekend videos. 

I will be back...

But right now I'm broken.
