Blogging Bunny-style

with 3 comments

Sjoe, but I really disappeared off the blogging radar there for a while, didn’t I? My bad.

Frankly, I have not been having the most fabulous time lately. I’ve been in a bit of a depressed fug which I cannot explain properly. Sort of a low-grade depression. But I really don’t want to get into that right now, and I seem to have surfaced again. Sometimes it’s best not to delve too deeply into a troubled psyche. Especially if the cloud is in the process of lifting.

The Sunday before last, my cousin passed away. He was only 21 years old. We had the funeral on Friday and it was unbearably sad. His parents are broken and I found it hard even making eye-contact with such raw and anguished grief.

My cousin had muscular dytrophy, and even though he battled physically because of it, he was positive and full of plans for the future – a light in many people’s lives. His passing was sudden and unexpected and he will be very sorely missed.

It has been a painful reminder of mortality. I feel a sense of urgency to somehow make a difference in this world. What and how remain a mystery, however.

On to the positive. We received the lovely news today that M’s brother and his wife are expecting their third child. I am very happy for them. They are such good parents and have two lovely boys and the new little one can only be a blessing in the family.

There seems to be a baby boom on the go again, because one of my very dear friends that I was at school with is also pregnant with her first. She and her hubby are living in Mozambique so I don’t see her too often.

No wonder I’m feeling half morbid. It is midnight and my back is sore. Think I’ll call it a day, and with any luck I can wake up on the right side of the bed tomorrow morning and be a tad more cheerful.
