I haven't had the energy to write for a few weeks now. Missing Mpira too much. And there have been other sudden deaths and disasters of people in my life. Not as close, but Mpira was, after all, 'just a dog', although to us he was much more than that and has left a huge gap.
My sorrow this time has been less for myself but more for the families of a dear friend who has disappeared, a child who is terminally ill... what tragedies these are for those closest. Touching me.
Such loss seems harder to cope with as I grow older. ? Surely it should be easier to cope with life experiences like these? Surely?
