When someone you love is dying, you must take time out. Time out from the worry and the tears and the helplessness. Time out from your house, the people around you, from the phone, especially the phone.
Inspired by Bill Cunningham’s quote, ‘Those who seek beauty, will find it,’ I walked around my streets this afternoon, listening to Mozart and tried not to openly sob. Slowly, my eyes stopped looking at the ugliness, skimming over the rubbish in the streets, the broken glass, the piles of suitcases and broken chairs on the nature strips, and instead I saw beauty in the darkness of the day.
Those who seek beauty, will find it.
