The loss of a loved one is a gray area too…

Dear Dani,

I’m very, very sorry to hear about your close friend having passed away. It is sad to hear that you are the second artist to have experienced such a sad loss during the course of the project. This fresh feeling of pain, regret, and emptiness after someone dear has been ripped out of our life is pretty much a gray area too. Not just regarding its heaviness and lack of joy – but it feels in some strange way like the first part of a new stage. It’s hard to put into words, but for me it tends to feel like a personal retrospect of things too – what have I done with my life, what is important in my life, what trace will I have left behind with others when I am no more, where am I not living myself…. and so on. Such times have made me more clearly aware of how precious life is and how short it can possibly be. T0 me that feels like a final gift from the person who has died and is like a very clear shaking awake of my possibly slumbersome stumbling through the unimportancies of my life. Life becomes ‘normal’ again, but first there is that gray area to transverse.

Thank you for your lovely words, and we are glad that you have been so happy with your partner Sebastian. That had already become quite evident from your active blogging and was fun to see. Thank you for your enthusiastic participation!
