So, what do you do when you are grieving? Me, I turn inward, curling in around myself. And then, I put on quiet music, and lose myself in meditative, easy work to keep my hands busy. It helps to feel like I am creating something, and keeping my hands busy is better than sitting idle.

I had a dear friend die unexpectedly on Saturday. I'll come back to this blog when I can reach outward again. In the meantime...go hug your loved ones! And then make sure you take care of yourselves, ok? No more of this dying stuff. It sucks.


  1. Sorry to hear about your friend... I tend to either lose myself in a book or just make stuff but I do stay away from people.

  2. Oh sweetie. *gigantic hugs*

    Sadly, I keep hearing this phrase lately from friends: "Universe! Stop with all the dying!" I imagine, it's because I know more and more people, and they know more and more people, and we're all aging together. Which means we're going to experience more loss and grief. I don't think it's going to stop, really, and I'm not sure what that really means for approaching life.

    Today: I bring you hugs and appreciation for you being in my life. *HUGS* -- Cat/Eilidh

  3. I am sorry to hear that. Sending peaceful thoughts your way.

  4. Thanks, everyone. I'm recovering...but it still sucks.
