Dear One, it seems that it's good to leave those last texts on your mobile, as long as it's comforting for you to do so. I think it's a lovely tribute to your friend, to still need them to be there, even if you aren't reading them often.

I'm probably one of those bloggers you saw mentioning Joseph Campbell. He is a very special person to me. And since it feels a lot like 'the sky is falling' around me, at present... It's time to get out some well worn books and re-read some passages. For comfort.

I have needed his words, both in joyful/freeing times, and in pain times. It happens to be pain time, at present.

And you are still feeling pain, from the loss of your friend. I would hope some of his words, could be of comfort to you too.

Do you have access to a compilation of some of his words, called "A Joseph Campbell Companion"? I have a long held paperback copy of this little book. I wish you had one too.



That must have been a very sad day for you, the anniversary of your close friend's death. I have never heard of Joseph Campbell but have just looked him up on Google.
I have enjoyed reading your previous posts too and you are so lucky to have such a wonderful view.


Thanks for your kind comments. I will see if I can find the Joseph Campbell collection and I hope Mari-Nanci, that things improve for you very soon x


Hi Jane, How very sad for you. We have a very close friend who is terminally ill and know that we will have to deal with the grief soon enough. It is a wonderful thing to have known good friendship though, that is a comfort I'm sure. Clare x


I am sorry for your loss. Your friend sounds like she was a wonderful person. I lost my mother three years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't think of her and wish I could share things with her. My comfort is my sisters, as we all share traits that our mother possessed, so in a way she is still with us through each other.
