Have a Mindful Weekend


Friends, I hope you have a peaceful, mindful weekend. What are you up to?

I'm looking forward to trying the new fish-finger menu (yes, really) at One-O-One restaurant in Knightsbridge tonight and taking part in our neighborhood jumble sale (goodbye, old clothes and furniture!) tomorrow.

I also just wanted to share that I'm struggling at the moment with some really sad news about a very close friend of mine who just passed away. I have been searching for the words to tell you how I feel about this - and how I felt about her - all week.

And they have all been so inadequate.

So I'll wait until the right ones come.

Until then, I have woken, crying, from dreams where I've been searching for her - more times than I can count this week.

My heart hurts so much right now and I keep looking up at the sky for answers. Those pink streaks of clouds don't bring me closer to any, but they do bring me some peace. They're a salve on a very much stinging, very open wound.

Be well, and keep each other close.

  8. I'm so sorry for your loss Jamie. I lost one of my dear friends back in March and it was so difficult in so many ways, but for blogging I too struggled with what to write. xo
