Latest zippy

Dear friends,
today I got a comment from a dear friend Margie asking how I was as I hadn't posted in a while. I've just been through another three weeks of quiet time where I rarely blog. My zippy, manic self does the blogging when I get up at 3.30 am and begin my day.
The photo is of the beach where I go walking. I haven't been walking much in ages. I used to walk an hour a day but now out of the habit. we have been getting blessed rain here on lots of days. Hasn't been like that for over 10 years!!!
My best friend has been down from Queensland and was planning on living here but has decided to go back. I have been experiencing grief at the loss of him and it has been a painful time. I am used to grief with death but not when someone is still alive. Loss causes grief often. it has been a learning experience for me. The grief is softening.
Haven't posted any art for weeks either so am doing a collage to post....I hope.
Meanwhile thanks to Margie for missing me. Missed you too.
lots of love from susan in australia
