Finding new territory
Since Felix died I find it helps to find new places to go. All the old places are full of memories of him, and it's good to visit them, but not all the time. About two weeks after he died Alex and I went for a walk along the coast path west of Heybrook Bay, a stretch we hadn't walked before, and found a stunning lagoon. It was the period in between Felix's death and his funeral, a surreal and unreal time. The magic of swimming in that lagoon was a moment of sanity in a miasma of madness. I've had the urge to go back there many times since.
