Not long ago I wrote about entering the Death year. I knew it would bring many changes, in the form of endings followed by new beginnings, yet I didn’t think Death itself would show up. I guess like most people, I didn’t want to entertain such visions.
A week ago Friday, my partner’s father passed away unexpectedly. It was sudden, and a total shock. It was a huge loss, made more acute by the strong bond between them.
The next couple of months will be full on, as we adjust to life and consider our options. We may well end up moving onto the bush block he owned, though at this stage nothing is certain and a lot depends on what my partner’s sister and brother would like to do as well. Only a couple of weeks ago we were talking how one day we would like to move onto my partner’s father’s land and look after it, but it was such a distant vision at the time, like a decade away.
For now, we will let time pass. There is a funeral to coordinate, and my partner needs time to grieve. Given all of this, I am placing this blog on hold for a couple of months. I may be back earlier, but I doubt it. Thanks to everyone who was been reading my ramblings. Blessings to you all.
