An unexpected event

I was at Zoey’s school play earlier … as usual, too long with some suspect creations but OK for all that.

The thing is, I got really upset at the start of it because I just kept thinking about Jermaine and it was terribly emotional. It felt like he had died and I was still upset at his passing and, in a way, I guess he has because he isn’t the boy I used to know anymore. What also upset me was that at this moment I realised that all my kids will one day be gone. It’s good of course, I mean, it has to happen but all the same, to dedicate all those years and then it is over just feels so empty.
