Lucie let out an almighty sigh as I was writing this.. maybe she also gets bushwhacked.
Joan Didion, in her wonderful book: ‘The Year of Magical Thinking’ about her husband’s death would talk about entering the vortex. The unexpected ambush when reliving a previous moment from your life with your loved one.
I think of it as a bushwhack. Mostly unexpected, a memory resurfaces often with a visual trigger. Today it was seeing this…
Manjula’s signature on an application for a PAN (taxation) card from 2015. Shortly after her diagnosis and our engagement.
It happens all the time and often with bubbling tears.
Its also significant as it’s all she could write.
