Weird Space

I'm in a bit of a weird space today. Not motivated to do any work, thinking a lot about impermanence, about change, about loss. Feeling like I want to run away and not waste precious time. Walk out the door and just go.

Tonight a bunch of us are meeting up at the restaurant that was a favourite of our friend Aveline, Aveline who just left us so young from an aneurism at 39. Tonight we'll celebrate her with her favourite Indian food and some drinks. Aveline's death has hit me harder than I would have expected, we saw each other so rarely, but she always lit up a room with her extraordinary prescence and it hurts to think that that light has gone out.

It's good that you'll CELEBRATE her life, as it sounds like a very good one, irrespective of its length.

Agreed. It was a large life, one that touched many people. Sometimes with a lash, but mostly with kindness.

Best eulogy ever!

I would love to walk out the door right now. Or even better... not come in at all anymore.
