Thanks for popping in. What a strange world we live in. I just attended a funeral online. Sat at the back, here alone in front of my computer, with a bunch of friends who were also sat at the back in their respective homes, in front of their computers.
We were all there to support a dear friend who recently lost her husband. It’s uncanny actually. That you can be hundreds of miles away, and yet be there, in the chapel. The pain and sorrow, the sadness and loss were palpable. It was just like sitting at the back. You may think this was bizzare, but actually, I was very glad to be allowed to participate in his farewell and be there for my friend, albeit virtually.
There’s only one thing for it. I have to make a little piece of art, and to spend a little time with her in my head. To send her healing energy, to tell her she will be okay. I’ll write her a letter, and pretend we’re having a cuppa together.
Life is hard sometimes, isn’t it.
