    A bit sad but I can feel that same emptiness we had after clearing out my mums retirement village house ,,…my mum had a great life but it is beyond words and too painful to express how I feel as she is now an empty shell with a vacant stare .it is not a nice stage of dementia ..I guess the lesson is too make the most of life in the here and now ….

  • thanks gill, well at least my mum should make christmas, which was an unexpected bonus :) she will probably end up going on for years tee hee :)) xx merry christmas to you gill and thanks for all your support over the last year.. xx

    So, so sad Linda, I feel the pain of loss just by looking at this extraordinary artwork. I hope that cold void will soon be a thing of the past, this drawing moves and saddens me deeply. oxox

  • Constance thanks for your lovely comment, it is so rewarding when a piece of artwork, really ‘works’… :) x
