The point of this playlist is to do with the process of grieving. Grief goes through stages, and I know them well, I have had to go through the process a dozen times in my life, twice in awful tragic conditions. The thing you can’t do is to settle into a set of behaviours, it is an easy trap to just settle into a routine, to clean in the morning, sleep in the afternoon and cry all night… If you settle like this you are doomed… doomed to replay the grief over an over until it is the only thing left in your life… And what a life eh? misery is a lonely emotion. I’m trying to keep things open and not shut up, sure I still have days where crying is the only option, but I force myself to enjoy the company of my family, even when I don’t want to; I keep changing where I take the dogs out and at what time; I change the day I shop and the day I do my washing… In essence, I do not want a set routine, in which the grieving is part of that routine. I want the grief ball which sits in my heart to become smaller and more manageable, and that is not going to happen if you routinely have a space to grieve in your daily routine. I am not trying to remove my beloved from my life, she is always going to be my soulmate, but I cannot let her occupy my corporeal life as she once did… because she is dead! She is now an essence, a spirit, and I am not, I cannot begin to occupy her realm, much as I would like to, because I am still here. So my beloved Marie, I am moving, trying to come to grips with the world that is left to me.

live in love my friends
