A dear friend of mine has died.
I am not disclosing his details until enough time has passed that people who knew him have heard the shocking news via a medium other than a blog.
I’m having trouble organising my thoughts.
I went to the dentist this morning, got a filling and then straight after I walked out the door, turned my phone on and received the news via text message. I stood there, just saying “What? What? WHAT?” just staring at my phone and yelling it over and over while the odd passer-by looked uncomfortable.
As I started making phone calls and walking to nowhere in particular, it struck me that I – in grand human tradition – am only realising how much he really meant to me, now that he is gone.
The dentist, then this.
I am truly numb.
