|Dead Thistles - 1206|
A few weeks ago a good friend came to visit us over Thanksgiving weekend. We all had a great time. She flew back to her new home in the Pacific Northwest.
On Wednesday morning, I found out this close friend died in her apartment. She had been a very healthy 36 year old less than two weeks ago and now her light just blinked out. No news on cause, but the family shared that there were "no signs of violence or self injury".
My friend who died lived her life full of adventure, fun and freedom. I am trying to figure out how the loss of her will impact me and what I should learn. The main lesson so far is to never assume I have a tomorrow.
This evening I got a message from another friend that both hurt and pretty much brought back the rift that we had filled in over the past few months that had divided us before. It is amazing how fast a few lines in a message does that. The lesson from this event is sometimes rifts just can't be filled without having a little storm wash it out again.
My second part of the Skyfall series is on hold. I will write more when I get back into the mood.
The darkness of this video feels fitting today.
