A Letter from my Mum who Died 10 Years Ago
My mum died on All Saints day Nov 1st 05 and the poignance of this is not lost on me. This Summer we found a letter from her addressed to me. This is my reaction upon first reading it. A letter from a dead-mother can be like a ghost who sits you down and steps you up, an "oasis of green and blue" or the bright strain in the overwhelming darkness that is the exciting and terrifying uncertainty of life and it's future. Its complexity reduced is simply - "Love and Compassion"- the kind that mothers triumphantly and unashamedly manage but most poignantly, most progressively, the kind they exhibit/express daily, that encourages others to do the same.
