Valediction



It’s difficult to comprehend that one of the most genuine and dear friends i've ever known has been gone 12 months. Previously cushioned by an invincible attitude that i have youth on my side and cancer won't catch me,i couldn't get my head around the fact that she was a few years older than me and 10 million times healthier. I’ve lost family over the years but the grief passed and didn't affect me in the same way that her passing did. I hate the fact that took losing her in order to fully realise that life is short. It prompted me to get off my ass and see more of the world. Whilst Vancouver simmers in an unusual heat wave I raise a glass to her memory tonight.


For months part of me refused to believe that she was really dead-Nope, she’s off gallivanting around the world, cracking people up and spreading a little light. She may not be physically here anymore but I still feel her presence at times.


August 2009 brings another loss, but of a different kind. A loss of trust, love and respect. Strange how a deceased person can seem so close and a living one so far away
