HOW TO KEEP GOING…

IMG_1194

TWICE IN MY LIFE THE WORST THING I COULD THINK OF HAPPENED. IN 1974 MY TEN YEAR OLD BROTHER GOT HUNG ON A ROPE SWING. I WAS 14, I COULD NOT IMAGINE A LIFE WITHOUT MY LITTLE BROTHER… BUT SOMEHOW I RESISTED THE URGE TO JOIN HIM IN THE GREAT BEYOND, IT WAS A CLOSE CALL, I EVEN PLACED A ROPE SWING AROUND MY NECK, BUT I DIDN’T DO IT. WHY? BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO LOVED ME WOULD NOT HAVE WITHSTOOD THE DAMAGE IF I HAD BEEN THAT SELFISH AND TAKEN MY OWN LIFE…

THEY SAY THAT TO GIVE UP ONE’S LIFE FOR THE GOOD OF OTHERS IS THE GREATEST GIFT, BUT I HAVE KEPT MINE SIMPLY BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT TO CAUSE HARM TO OTHERS. THAT WAS MY GIFT.

AND AGAIN WHEN MY BELOVED MARIE WAS TAKEN FROM ME LAST YEAR, I FELT THAT THIS LIFE WAS UNENDURABLE WITHOUT HER IN IT. AGAIN I WAS SO CLOSE… BUT THE LOVE OF OTHERS CONVINCED ME THAT I WAS VALUABLE TO THEM, AND THAT LOSING ME WOULD HAVE BEEN UNENDURABLE FOR THEM.

WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY HERE IS THAT DEATH HOLDS NO THRALL. DEATH IS EASY, THE SOUL DEPARTS AND THE BODY BECOMES MEAT. IT IS THE BONDS THAT TIE US TO LIFE THAT ARE IMPORTANT, AND THE LOVE THESE BONDS CREATE. THESE ARE THE ONLY BENEFITS FOR LIVING ON THIS PRISON PLANET.

SO, TO KEEP GOING YOU NEED TO FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE YOU, SEE HOW MUCH THEY NEED YOUR LOVE, AND EXCEPT THAT IS THE ONLY THING IN THIS LIFE THAT REALLY MATTERS.

I SEND LOVE TO YOU ALL AND THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES.

LOVE DALE M WE WITH J

IMG_5617[1]

IN THE LAST HALF HOUR JANET HAS BROKEN THE KEY IN THE CONSERVATORY DOOR,

KILLED THE HOT WATER HAVING A SHOWER AND SPILT HALF A BOTTLE OF RED WINE ON THE WINDOWSILL AS SHE WENT TO THE WINDOW TO CLAP THE NHS WORKERS…

PLEASE DON’T ENCOURAGE HER TO DO ANYTHING ELSE… I DON’T THINK I CAN COPE WITH THE STRESS!
