The real world

Sorry for the interruption in our regular "programming." We'll get back to that innocent world soon. Promise.

In the meantime, I'm reeling from news from the real world and struggling to process it all. A friend of mine suffered the worst attack imaginable recently. She had a seizure following the brutal attack, which left her unable to speak or move. She passed away on Sunday afternoon.

Another friend, a teacher with two young kids, committed suicide recently. Her kids are now with her ex, and have emigrated to another country, where their father lives.

I can't make sense of any of it, and I'm so incredibly heartbroken for these two families.

Dear Anonymous,

I was indeed referring to Roz, and am still so saddened by her death, and the circumstances of her passing. Do you mind emailing me at ginnegaap at yahoo dot com? I'd love to hear how you knew her, and connect with you. Thanks.
