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.
