In which our protagonist attempts to shine light into the abyss
One more comment. I believe in signs. I lost my dad too, and have hit the point where he's been gone (physically) from my life longer than he was here with me. Your openness here is so beautiful and straightforward, and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you write. I was tearing up reading this post. I may have written this to you on slack, I'm not sure. My mind is a little foggy lately, but I wanted to be sure to tell you.
Now that I've finally joined Substack I can follow you properly! I had been reading your newsletter via the links on our LWS slack. And I have a backlog of comments, but I won't put them all here. ;) Just wanted to pop on and say that I love your writing, and your heart.
It was so wonderful to meet you IN ACTUAL PERSON and give you a bear hug. I'm with you every step of the way my ducks and love your open-ness and frankness about what's going on in your life. Your Bloomsbury piece is absolutely beautiful. Write on my wonderful friend - Jx
