Tales from a Fractured Folly: 12th June 2017


Cheating with this picture as I took it election night, oddly looking east at 9.30pm so I’m not sure what was going on there. A little philosophy today – “we have to live with that hole in our souls until we find a new normal”. This was a description of bereavement that I heard in the radio and is struck me as very apt. It also struck me, driving in the sun with the roof down on Sunday, that Worth would have been proud of himself for transforming me from the person he met all those years ago, to someone who would buy themselves a Porsche unaided. It was a massive evolution and not many people would realise that. And then I discovered that years ago he was already proud of himself for what he had achieved then. Not sure what I achieved in our relationship but I think I opened his eyes to his surroundings, smoothed his rough edges and just filled his life with love ❤️.

  1. In every single post, I was keenly aware that you filled his life with love. Such a beautiful thing.

    • There was a time not so long ago, a moment in time I don’t forget, when he sat in front of me on the sofa, messed with my hair (he liked that I never minded that) and said,” don’t ever forget that this man loves you with all his heart and soul and no-one could ever love you more”. Someone who had lost their husband very suddenly said they envied our circumstances as they never had the time to say goodbye. It seemed a bit bizarre when she said it but I do understand now.

      • Oh, dear. That is sad to hear someone say that. You really put in perspective what I have always heard: Never forget to tell someone how much you love them. You might not get another chance. You both did have something very special.
