Maya sent me a link to a great article by a guy called Roger Ebert (USA film critic). Its stuff he wrote about thoughts on dying...not a light read, but thought provoking stuff for people like me - who frequently (well constantly) wonder where you are and how the whole process of leaving us was for you.
Anyway - this was one of the bits I liked best - apparently said and written down by Vincent Van Gough many years ago.
To die quietly of old age would be to go there on foot.
So for me and Maya - its kind of comforting to know you are with the stars (that you love so much) and took the train and didn't walk there slowly....
Lots of love
