We woke up fresh from the nights sleep. I looked at you and wondered how I got so lucky.
I didn’t want to leave the apartment that morning. I can’t remember what we spoke about, only a few short words. You were pleasant and kind as you always were.
When I was ready, you fixed my tie before I left. God knows where I was going in a suit. The Four Courts, I think, for a weeks internship with Brady.
But you fixed my tie and smiled at me deep in the eyes. It struck me how wonderful you were and how I was so lucky to have woken up with you there.
We were just friends, nothing romantic had ever happened save one kiss in a Happenstance – but that morning, nearly ten years ago, you fixed my tie and smiled me off to the world – you fixed it – and I felt lucky to know you.
Good morning, good morning sick world. Good morning worried people, good morning to a curled lady on her floor filled with worry and safety and economy.
In these worrying times, please get off the floor Angela. Be kind, stay safe and be nice to each other and yourself…and realise we are all here for you.
You have to be there for everyone else too… This means don’t see each other. But contact them heavily. Look after yourself first. The best way to do that is stay inside and don’t meet your beloved. It’s gonna be a hell of year or two.
Please be careful, take the time out for yourself and for everyone else. Learn to be alone for everyone…
And know that we love you! And we’re here for you. Hit us up if you wanna vent.
If we’re alone, then we are all alone together. And that’s a wonderful thought. Self care is essential for my Granny.
