I saw another hill today. Actually, she's a mountain, and she's my favourite, and I have no idea why she is a she in my mind, but she is, and that's all.
I remember saying to someone I love, a few years ago, when things like this happen, it's as if you lose a layer of skin. So there is absolutely no defence against anything. This turns out to be true. I'm not sure I knew when I said it how true it was. Or perhaps I forgot.
I'm going off the blog for a bit. Do not fret; it is logistics, mostly. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the incredible kindness you have shown in the last week. Each comment has made me smile, and the thoughtfulness and sheer heart of what you have written has touched me profoundly.
Back in a little while.
