Such continuous turmoil all around takes its toll on us all.
A new dawn always rises and a summer of gentle reconnections has been a green shoot emerging from a leaden heart.
For years, grief loss and fear crushed everything, I had lost all concept of identity and purpose. Auto pilot and the love of a little dog was actually enough to keep me around.
In the summer of 2022, I dared to look up and gradually I am feeling alive once more, older, different and scarred but okay.
Grief has been a very good teacher.
