Ah dear one, I am sad. I will be in Melbourne on August 4th. I will miss you by just a few days.
I will miss you, your being, your spirit, your generosity and your love. It has been good to know that you are in the world even when I am on the other side of it and to have been able to think of you, albeit too briefly, as my friend.
I hope everything goes well. I know you are not a huggy person but since I am only hugging you in my thoughts maybe that is OK. It's a big hug though!
From my heart and mind x
ps Don't forget the anti-emitic.
