For many reasons these past days have seemed to be just so long. And it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and out of your depth, to be estranged, misunderstood and even angry. I think for all the joys life gives us, in equal measure it tries to steal our smiles. The unexpected, coincidental, unsettling, nonsensical and tragic happen and what is there, who is there that can explain it in any way for it to be okay again..? The truth is that whatever the reason, every day and especially the long ones, are just reminders of a shortening life. There’ll be sadness, there’ll be joy and every other unnamed, unspoken feeling too. And somehow despite it all, it is still within our power which to show and what to do.
