It’s been a while

I haven’t posted for over a week, mainly because we went away on holiday, although we came home early as my mother sadly took very poorly and passed away on Monday. I wasn’t sure if I would say anything about it publicly like this, but I wanted to explain the silence and I prefer just to come out with it rather than beat about the bush. My mum was 92 and her death was peaceful and natural, as good as you could hope for really. No doubt some of the stuff I’m feeling now will come out in poetry at some point, but I’m not sure when. The main thing is that it’s not a tragedy, it’s the rhythm of life. I will miss her though.

    Oh Robin, I’m so sorry. You’re right: peaceful and natural is as much as any of us wish, for ourselves or anyone we love.
