Just a place for my old thoughts

New beginnings

Saturday was the open house so we had to clear out while the agent did his magic. Mum and I headed down to Oxford Street for brunch and to kill time.

I don't know why but I headed for Riverbend cafe which turned out to be a wonderful choice. Mum had this rather decadent blueberry bagle. Afterwards we wandered the bookstore just enjoying ourselves.

Normally I would be drawn to the cook book section but, given current happenings, I found myself in the happiness section. And I found a wonderful book that has provided such support and clarity.

We had had such a busy day that when we finally got home after 2pm Mum headed for a snooze. I just read, and cried, and read.

It was cathartic in a very deep way.

So I have undertaken with myself to try and find the light and joy in the current events.

No matter how dark it might seem to me at times.
