I think we really can give each other some comfort and company through this forum, even though it is 'only' through written words. Just to feel someone cares and empathises... I have been much more settled and at peace over the weekend.
I have been engrossed in making a drawing which has a very intricate pattern, so that helped, too, as I needed to concentrate.
And I suddenly realised it was so cold outside and all the birds would need water, so put a dish out near the conservatory window and looked on and off all day to see many different birds - and a squirrel - come for a drink. A blackbird has just decided to get bathed in it, so I've just changed the water again!!
Anyway, special loving thoughts to any of you who are suffering at this moment. The moment will pass, and I hope you have at least a few minutes, hours and hopefully days, weeks and months of respite.
Love to all.
