MOURNING IS OVER

cropped-img_2175-1.jpg

I HAVE IT IN MY MIND THAT MOURNING LASTS A YEAR AND A DAY. I DON’T KNOW WHERE I MAY HAVE PICKED THIS INFORMATION UP FROM… PROBABLY FROM A LATE VICTORIAN NOVEL READ DURING MY DEGREE COURSE… BUT IT SEEMS A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME. OBVIOUSLY, THE EMOTIONS DON’T END THERE, BUT I’M MAKING A CONSCIOUS EFFORT TO GET ON WITH LIVING AGAIN. I HAVE BEEN SLEEPWALKING THROUGH THE LAST YEAR, WITHOUT MUCH RHYME OR REASON, BUT NOW I HAVE VERY LITTLE MONEY LEFT AND HAVE TO FACE THE PROSPECT OF EARNING A LIVING.

MARIE IS OK WITH THIS, I THINK. I KNOW SHE WILL BE THERE WHEN I PASS OVER, AND WE WILL LIVE ANOTHER LIFE TOGETHER… THIS IS THE WAY OF EXISTENCE. I AM STILL HERE FOR A REASON, AND THAT REASON IS NOT TO LIE IN MY BED.

SO, I AM FACING FORWARD FOR WHAT ITS WORTH.
