I cannot find the words to describe how devastated I felt yesterday when I learnt that Elspeth Thompson was gone. My hand flew to my mouth and I cried big ploppy drops that worried the Little people. My heart ached all day, a really heavy, horrid achey feeling that would not go away.
I feel the same today, although without the debilitating shock factor. But the achey feeling of Loss and Disbelief is still there, pulling on my heart in that same heavy, insistent way.
This is how I genuinely feel, yet I have never met Elspeth, only know her through her beautiful words and pictures, through the emails we wrote to each other. Just goes to show that the Friendships forged in The Land of Blog are as strong, beautiful, amazing and giving as any that form in our "real lives".
Elspeth :: I shall miss you, more than I am able to say. You touched upon my life in such in inspiring and wonderful way, I can't thank you enough for all that you gave me. You will always be in my thoughts and in my heart.
