i've been putting together a little symbol of autumn tonight. for my grandma who passed away last week.
it feels surreal to say she has gone. she is all around me. this season was her very favourite.
a september birthday. these colours she loved to wear and suited her better than anyone.
i could not have wished for a more loving person to be in my life. she made me feel incredibly safe and inspired and happy just by being there and being with me. even when i was a grown up it felt good to feel like a grandchild...uncomplicated even when things were so very serious.
we are making a bookmark for everyone to keep at the service as a little keepsake. so tonight i am drawing and thinking and enjoying doing something small for her.
