Death and still life

From the day dear horse was put down – almost a week now – I have been doing little drawings and paintings of objects that are connected to the farm and this sad time in our lives.

It has taken me almost a week to sit down with my daughter and talk to her about the horse. I feel bad that I didn’t talk to her earlier, but I just couldn’t. It was traumatic to see – but we must take comfort in that it was the humane thing to do.

I think I explained it as best as I could. I think she understands.

Horse passing triggers up all of the loss from this last year. But we are close to some kind of finishing line, close to closure. Or something.
