Normally we'd have a post up here on a Thursday...and now it's Friday...and this is not really a post.

We're taking a break this week as one of our members has suffered a major loss in her family.  It's hit us all hard.  Feeling sorry for someone doesn't always cut it.  Sometimes all you can do is stop what you're doing and take in one breath and let out one breath.

Put away your labours.  Pause.

Grief is a tricksy thing.  It can't be helped.  It can't be shared.  And you can't take it off someone like a stray eyelash on a cheek.

You can relate.  And you can link words to hearts and these ache wide open.
