Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) How to make your day a little better: have an ice cream at lunchtime ;D

I went out, needed to check the paint shop, and on the way back walked past an ice-cream shop and decided to have one: yes, it's cloudy and chilly and it started raining soon after, but those are the days that become better with an ice cream 8)

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel Hi @JMack ,
I am so sorry to hear of your family's difficulties and losses. I wish you strength and resilience going through this period, and on the far side, peace and solace.

There's a line in that old astronaut movie The Right Stuff when someone is comparing astronauts to the monkeys, and Chuck Yeager says that the difference is the monkey doesn't know all the things that can go wrong. I kind of think of us being in that position - knowing how things will end but ultimately unable to do anything about it. Being human is a helluva thing. Peace and strength brother, in equal measure to you and yours.

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel There are no words that can reply to that, Jmack - just know we're here thinking of you and wishing you clarity and calm to do the best.

I just wonder, if the doctors say his brain damage is too severe, would organ donation help make sense of it all? Could he help many other people?

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel For what it's worth, I'm truly heartbroken for you and your family @JMack . Not a situation I'd wish upon my worst enemies. That's life, for you - sometimes, the unfairness of it all is just revolting. Wishing you and yours lots of love xx

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel I'm very sorry, @JMack. I wish I could suggest something, but there really are no good options in your situation. All I can do is wish you and your strength.

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel @JMack For whatever it might be worth, I respect your strength and stoicism as you ask the hard questions and ponder their answers. Perhaps your father will recover, and we all hope this comes to pass.

I was in a similar situation with my grandfather, who was returned to his home to hospice when I arrived. He died in the deep night, with only myself holding his hand and caressing his brow. He left the world with a kiss on his forehead and my tears on his arm. So far as I have seen, this is as good an ending as anyone can hope for, and better than most by a good way. This stands tall in my memory - my best service to him. And he taught me how to pass with dignity and humor - his best service to me. My point, if I have one, is that on the far side of this pain and doubt there is wisdom and solace. Until you get there, I'll be thinking of you and wishing you strength.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) @JMack, you know what's coming ;D




And yes, so sad the burning...
I was hearing this morning that the spire was already a late reconstruction of the original medieval one, so they can reconstruct again and make the 21st century also part of the cathedral's history.
