this week one of my students, a lovely a 70 year old woman, told me a touching story about her life-long best friend.
once when she was very young they were out picking wild berries. she ate so many they turned her mouth black. the older boys from her village cruelly told her she had a matter of minutes to live and that her spirit would be taken far away, she would never see her family again and would spend eternity alone. naturally she was inconsolable, until her friend took her hand and told her not to worry, she would eat berries too and that way their souls would be together forever.
lottie my lovely, today its your birthday. i'm sorry i cant be there. i will think about you all day. i am with you in spirit. love yooooooou.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
