I've been staying away from the media to settle my brain. I haven't even turned on the TV or radio since that night. I've been keeping busy instead. More scenery is in the works. That octopus's garden is never ending.
In spite of my media blackout I do know of the passing of Leonard Cohen. His voice was the soundtrack of my life and I am beyond heartbroken. I can't tell you how many times he's whispered Suzanne to me as I took one of my sad walks in the woods. Bird on the Wire was the lullaby I sang to my babies as I rocked them to sleep. My past is slipping away one artist at a time...sigh.
Your cards will warm someone's heart.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful idea!ReplyDelete
My Friend - I too have taken heart and hope by the designers on Ravelry who are showing us some things we CAN do to offset this horrible thing; (I still can't say the words out loud). Like you I have avoided ALL media like the plague. Love the Leonard Cohen quote.ReplyDelete
So sad. He was a true poet. And this of all weeks ...ReplyDelete
Oh, I've been staying away from the TV and radio as well and had not heard of Leonard Cohen's passing. Sad. The quote above is one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
Nice to turn your sadness into something meaningful! It will do you and someone else some 'very' good.ReplyDelete
I'm going to follow your lead and keep busy.....very busy. God Bless Leonard Cohen. Very inspiring words....Thank you for sharing them!ReplyDelete
Those cards will definitely brighten someone's holiday. They are adorable.ReplyDelete

What sweet little cards. I've been flat on my back all week after my test last week and so have for the most part avoided TV and social media. The little I have read/seen has apalled me with the words being flung around from both sides. It all makes me very sad. Blessings, BetsyReplyDelete
The only TV I watched this week was the Ellen show, I usually never have time to see it but I made a point of it the two afternoons I was home. I will only read DailyKos, nothing else at the moment.ReplyDelete
