Another story from my life in Riga, Latvia. This was written the same year I lost my soul mate in 2017.
I can tell you right now that ever since my husband died in August of 2017 I have my good, my bad and my impossible days. When the good days come everything is normal and I go about my routine and I am always glad when the day speeds by.
When the bad days come it is a challenge because no matter what I do or what I look at there is always something that makes me trigger a memory. Now the autumn rains have started and I realize that even my cat Sid knows he needs to stay closer to me and spends a good part of his day sleeping next to me on a table next to the PC I work on. You can see him in the photo.
Today, unfortunately, turned into an impossible day. First, it was the rain, then came some sun and made me misty-eyed and then the rain returned. Just when I thought that things couldn’t get any worse Demi Roussos decided to do a number on the radio. That made me think of the different ways of saying goodbye and that we should never say goodbye in anger to anyone because we don’t know if we will get to see them again. I wish I had had the chance for goodbye or at least one last word of love.
Now I have neither one nor the other but I am glad they are together.
