Losing friends

When you open up Facebook you don’t expect to hear that a friend has passed away. Someone who I admired. A good artist and a compassionate and sensitive man.

I guess I would rather find out than not know at all. Waiting to see if he would post new art, or a post about how he was feeling. He went missing for a couple of months about two years ago. He eventually turned up and everything turned out OK.

Now, I don’t know. I guess I’m glad I met him on a website and saw his art, he lived in a different country so we were never going to meet up. But that doesn’t matter, he was a very good artist and was a thoughtful person.

I lost another friend in a similar way last year. This was a woman from overseas. Another artist.

The internet allows people who would never normally meet to find each other. At least I’ve found out what has happened. Feeling very sad.

  1. I’m sorry he’s passed away and that you are sad. I often think the world has a soul and when we die we go back to being part of that one big gentle loving presence which is around us all the time. I don’t know if it’s true but it gives me a lot of comfort. (If this isn’t helpful for you, please just ignore it – I just wantd to share something that helps me at times like this.)
