For Mary

After my friend Mary wrote this about her cancer, we have all been out planting spring bulbs, myself included.

We none of us know where we will be in a week’s time, let alone next spring. But sometimes it’s a necessary act of resistance to plant something for our future selves to enjoy.

I hope Mary will enjoy hers too.

    We are all of us touched by the uncertainties of life.

    Thank you. I’ve planted some too, more in hope than expectation but you never know. And the DH can enjoy them.
