The recent kindness shown by others has touched me greatly. Friends, family, colleagues and hospice staff especially deserve a mention as do those who've left kind words after my two most recent blog posts. In a troubled world it is a beautiful thing indeed when humanity shines through.
Of course, music has been a comfort too and has also given expression to feelings which have been hard to articulate. It's such a pivotal part of my life. Perhaps it was inevitable that angry thoughts around God allowing suffering would surface. In the throes of watching someone in mental agony in the middle of a long night there seemed no adequate response that would counter that one. Even so, there's this song, that often gets played on a loop on those long West East car journeys that are an inevitable part of life at the moment. It's the one that has been bringing me the most solace.
