the opposite of loneliness

I’ve been missing my mum an awful awful lot recently. It’s been a pretty quiet term, and in that quietness her absence has come to feel very tangible. Last week I wrote a list of things I would do when I felt a bit wobbly and so this morning, while all my friends started their exams, I sat with a bagel (ok not a new phenomenon) and wrote postcards to all those people I’d be meaning to write to for yonks and yonks. In the early hours this morning, I also reread one of the most remarkable and wonderful books I’ve ever come across – ‘The Opposite of Loneliness’ by Marina Keegan – and it got me thinking, as it always does, about reasons to carpe diem! I can’t urge you enough to read it. Now I’m off to have a sunny walk in the Botanical Gardens, and then I’m gonna smash this essay. Happy Wednesday, everyone, stay positive!
