a letter to friends
I come out of this season while away knowing a few things for sure:
Final goodbyes are the most painful sort
They become no less so with repetition
Four feels too many
Little girls – and little boys – mend hearts
Sky and earth make good medicine
so do rainy streets
I never dreamed that I would be away from this space for so long. For us, this has been a season to remember. Maybe it has been for you too.
We’ve suffered painful losses, I’ve returned to school, we’ve found sky and earth in the Highlands of Scotland, we’ve celebrated beginnings and we’ve loved.
I’ve missed a great deal here – and I’ve missed you. Still, I know this time away has been necessary – and for this, it’s been good.
I’ll bring food to you later this week. For the coming season, simple food – sink-your-teeth-into, wrap-your-heart-around, simple, good food.
Wishing everyone well, and hello again!
