A Day of Loss

Posted by Lara at 8:56 PM
I don't really have it in me to do a Google-age today. I'm not sure I have it in me to give you much of anything, in fact.

I got a bit of bad news this afternoon, followed pretty quickly by Bertie's departure to his new home. I went to OP and Charcoal's apartment in the hopes of cheering myself up by playing with their kittens and chatting with my good friends - it worked as a temporary distraction, but not a long-term solution. When I came home, Tenny came running to the door, looking up at me and crying; I can't tell if he genuinely misses Bertie already or if my own sadness is contagious.

Either way, I suddenly feel quite lonely.

Miss your google-age - it's always so much better than mine - but - more concerned that all is well with you. You know you can always count on us out here in the blogosphere to be here for you!

Hi Lara. Life has this annoying habit of once in a while knocking us over, doesn't it. Hope you feel better soon.

Lara: Whatever the bad news is, know that you have friends you can turn to for help and consolation. Sadness is, indeed, contagious; so is hope and smiles--especially yours.

So sorry, Lara. Sometimes temporary distractions are the best you can do, huh? Take care.
