Our beloved friend and guardian is no more. At least not in her animal form. On Monday, May 8th, we went to the veterinarian with her and had to realize that that day, that afternoon, our paths no longer ran alongside each other.
Writing this I feel the pain is still fresh, still like an open wound sore to the touch. And for now I have very little words; they all seem to jumble up, become something muddy and untangible. So for now I need a little rest, time to take it in. Distance.
