Family

As I pass yet another Valentine’s day display in a kitchenware shop, it is hard to stop myself from being violently sick over the stylish fine china – whose life expectancy I would roughly estimate as 1.5 days in our household. I can practically touch the great big dream-shaped hole in my life. So much has been lost: My companion, our family, our future. Yet as I look out of the window, not all has gone: The sun setting over the snowy mountains, the smell from the bakery around the corner, and a thin but sturdy wall of protection around me – the love from my family. Knowing there are people I can call in the middle of the night, hearing them bang on about feeding me up and getting some sleep. Being loved unconditionally, when Valentine’s day feels like an insult…
