Margot December 25th 1960 - April 19th 2012

Margot skyped me some time back, maybe a year and a half? No more. She told me she had a brain tumour. I'll never forget her face telling me on the computer. It was horrible to have to hear and so shocking. My friend Jayne who found me through Facebook had just died of cancer and now this? It was scaring me. Margot said, 'we'll come to visit you in Santa Fe when I'm better.' I just found out on Facebook that she died last week leaving a husband and a ten year old daughter. She had been my agent once in England and what a lovely lady she was. Her sister died last year of cancer and her brother died before that age 43. Death is scary to me. I'm speechless... rest in peace dear lady..

Back from a trip to Truth or Consequences soaking in hot springs, my skin feels sooo soft. I loved it there..we needed it.. and look the garden has grown! The scent of these flowers nearly knocked me off my feet last night when I got out of the car...

Same Day..

Last night reading Patti Smith's book Just Kids before I went to bed I read that both Jim Morrison and Brian Jones died on July 3.. same day as Pam. July 3rd, just to add, happens to be the only other Pam in the family, my dad's sister's birthday...

knitting project finished..

when I get a chance I'll take a photo of the jumper and post it. I love it!  Now I'm onto a sock.. Meanwhile (since it's easter) here is a pic of two rabbits I met in Crosby by the sea near Liverpool in 2004. From jumper to Thumper. Pebbles, the bunny at the back was the most cuddly of the two. We made an instant connection.
