Wow. You know you rock, right? Yes you, the person reading this. You! Do you have any idea how lovely you are?
I disappear for a year. Come back and whinge like the Dickons. Roll around like some raging emo kid. And you don’t ignore me. You don’t roll your eyes and shake your head.
No. You make me feel loved. I have been completely astounded by the depth of kindness and compassion you’ve offered me. And I wanted you to know that I am deeply, deeply touched. And not just in the way of the cuckoo.
Hope, compassion, love, strength, support, kindness, empathy…and always, a little silliness. I hope you too have people who share these with you in abundance.
So, from the squishy bit in my left ventricle, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
La (almost back to being) Dolce Vita
