Takes more than a just a memory to make me cry - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Takes more than a just a memory to make me cry
It's been a year since Maryke died. In the end, I've decided to do some thesis work at home, and go to mass at lunchtime.

In the past year, I've been relatively ok. I find that my grief creeps up on me at the most unlikely moments. Sometimes when I'm working on my thesis at night, other times it's a song on the radio that triggers it. I like to think that I've reconciled myself to life without her, but death always seems to leave you with a lot of unanswered questions about the deceased. However, I won't get into them here. In time, perhaps I'll get tired of asking myself these questions and just let things remain ambiguous for the time being.

Finally, because I want to, I've uploaded a few of the songs from Maryke's folder of mp3s. I've often thought about deleting the entire folder, but now I'm considering burning the whole collection onto cd.

Nick Cave- Into my Arms

Elliott Smith- Waltz #2

Colin Hay- I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You

The Beach Boys- God Only Knows

Current Mood: melancholy melancholy
Current Music: Sarah Blasko - The Flame Trees

Being across an ocean and a good chunk of continent makes me feel incredibly unhelpful, but I hope you know I am (electronically) there for you. A year's hardly anything when it comes to the death of a loved one, so I think it's very understandable that you're thinking about it still.

*hug* You're strong.

And I'd still like to meet you for coffee sometime... I'm just always too shy to ask seriously.

My most sincere condolences, and I'm sorry for not saying it earlier.

I'm sorry I didn't get to post a comment sooner. I downloaded the songs and went to comment and then went AFK and didn't come back. Thank you for sharing them - the Colin Hay one especially is beautiful and very poignant. I've been thinking about you - I can't believe it's been a year already.

*huge hugs* Take care ok?
