Bye friend

It's been a hazy period. I still don't have much to say. A lot to feel. My legs are heavy. Breath light. I ache in the middle. 

I said goodbye to my friend of 17 years. My dearest companion. I am better, knowing her. But right now I am unmoored in pain. Thank you, kind friends, for your support. I raise a glass to all of us who deeply love our wild companions.
