I have a confession. My last post, about Tina, was written on Tuesday night. I was really feeling it then and needed to spill it out. So this post is about the things that happened today, the real 30th of May.
I had to go to Cooktown today and a couple of things happened. On the way in, a whistling kite was hovering above the road, at about windscreen height. It rose as I approached, but strangely, there was no roadkill where it was hovering. It also appeared just as I was thinking about Her. About thirty minutes later I was thinking about Her again, and as I came over a rise, a Wedge-tailed Eagle was circling above the road. In town,as I was doing the Facebook thing while sitting on the back steps of the office, I looked up into the sky and four eagles were riding the currents so high, that they almost disappeared.
I didn’t phone all the kids as I had planned because I wouldn’t have been able to handle the emotion. But I love you kids. All of you. I just ain’t very strong at the moment. I’m getting there. But in June/July, we’re all gunna be emotional again … together.
Today was a heavy day.
(Does anyone need the significance of the eagles explained? Comment if you do).
And I really miss Her more than sunshine. I could live in an overcast world if She was with me. She was my Sunshine. My reason. My motivation.
