Hello friends. (Welcome, new friends.)
I'm in Canberra at a book promotion conference for Jacaranda Snow. A sweet woman in the hotel snapped this photo of Luther and me last night, before we had dinner. And then, in the middle of the night I got a call from my sister and my Mum letting me know that my brother had passed on, unexpectedly.
We were six -- Jim was top and I am tail -- and now we're five.
So now: on a plane soon, and in my heart I'm already winging my way home to Canada and all the people I love.
Thanks in advance for your kindness. For you, this Sunday, a favourite poem:
Love, Catherine x
