קומי Kumi, Get up
That's what's said to the female mourner to her up from shiva. Then you're supposed to literally get up and leave the house, at least to walk around the corner.
Why "sort of?" Well, it's a new "normal."
Mourning a parent doesn't end at the cemetery, nor at the end of shiva, the Jewish ritual of seven days of mourning.
Jewish Law takes mourning very seriously, and mourning a parent is the most extensive mourning period. It's supposed to last a year. Other close relatives, a child, sibling or spouse are only halachikly (by Jewish Law) mourned a month.
During the first month for a parent, there are many restrictions, such as no swimming. After the first month there are fewer. I'm not an expert. No doubt I will blog more. Today is doubly difficult because it's the fast of the 17th of Tamuz and I don't functions well without drinking water and coffee.
My eyes keep closing....
