I wasn’t even going to publish an ejo this month because my Mum unexpectedly died a few days ago and I am experiencing tsunami wave after wave of indescribable pain and grief. I figured, if there was ever a good enough reason to not publish – this was it. I am absolutely fucking grief stricken. My heart is shattered into a million pieces and the last thing I feel like doing is publishing my 111th ejo.
My Mum was my biggest fan. Hands down. Each and every month she would read my rants and take the time to write back to me and tell me what she liked about what I had written. And sorry to the rest of you, but my Mum’s opinion was the only one that mattered.
I feel empty now, writing this from my Mum’s study, knowing she isn’t in the other room. Knowing she won’t ever read it. Knowing I won’t get a response this time. But still, I’m doing it for her. All of my future ejos will be for her.
I love you Mum.
