Quince tartin

17Apr11

Such a strange and profound dinner tonight.

Me and Jem and Max and Kath and Elaine.

Starters – bruscetta with salmon marinated in lemon and lime juice, Spanish onions and capers served with coriander.

Main – pizza with prawns, goats cheese, rocket.

Dessert – baked quinces tartin.

Conversation ranged from morphine, writing novels, travel and everything in between.

A delightful evening but tinged for me with such sadness. Everyone felt it. We are all cloaked with sadness, in sadness.
As I said to Jeremy when Kath and Elaine just left, I feel this week has an intensity and sadness that I find quite overwhelming.

So easily moved to tears. We all are.

I long for sleep and relief from feeling so very sad.

This journey seems so hard.
