    Last update for awhile

    Hi my friends,

    I'm going to be stepping away from the forum next week. If I get my book finished this year, I'll put up a post so you can get a copy if you like.

    If you want to stay in touch, you can reach me at [email protected]

    Life is moving forward, finally. My stress is easing and I'm sleeping better. I'm starting to feel more relaxed in my new home and getting used to being on my own again (with my cat). Still have moments of grief that feel overwhelming, but better than last month.

    Something I've found that helps a lot. I have a small notebook that when I want to tell Ezri something, I write it to her there. I also put in the occasional picture, her business card from when she was a massage therapist, and things like that.

    I had a dream the other night where Ezri was in a new flat of her own, she was standing tall and talking fine. The flat was white, well lit and airy, just how she likes it. All her family and carers were there, but she shooed us out and said she'll be fine. Part of my mind says that was her telling me not to worry about her, and the other part reminds me it was just my subconscious in my dream. Regardless, I feel better.

    Hanging in there, one day at a time.

    Take care . So glad you're moving forward x


      Hi Pen,

      It sounds like the dream has given you the reassurance that Ezri is resting in peace, and you are now ready to move forward with new beginnings and, hopefully in future, many new sailing adventures.

      I hope that happy memories of your time with Ezri will be a comforting companion, as you continue with your life's journey.

      It would be lovely if you could finish your book this year. Are you going to include any of your poems? - I found your poem 'Boxes' particularly moving. I wouldn't be surprised if you were to write a sequel to the book, as you have such a great talent for expressing your thoughts and feelings in your writing.

      I wish you well for the future.
      Take care,
      Kayleigh x

        Thank you Skipton and Kayleigh,

        I hadn't thought about my poems, but yes, probably will. I'm including one of my short poems or life sayings in the front of all my books (not that I have any published yet), so will do the same with this one.
