Last Word

I finish work at 4pm on a Friday and I enjoy listening to Last Word on the way home. It always makes me think that I might like to be on it (in the very distant future). I'm not looking for fame or fortune and I think it's highly unlikely that I'm going to change the world but it would be nice to make a difference to a few lives so that your not being here anymore might be worthy of mention. That there was some kind of lasting impact of you having been here. Maybe beyond your own family. Let's hope I don't go too soon because I think I have some way to go!


  1. Thanks for your comment on my last blog post - means a lot. Just taking a chance to read through some of your posts - sounds to me like you are making a difference!

  2. Hi - thanks for dropping by my blog, I've read yours all the way through; it's really lovely. I know quite a few people who have lost children over time - some 40 years ago, some recently, some babies, some older - and what you say about it being a happy life and someone is missing would probably sum up most of them. I'm glad you talked to your co-worker, I think death is something that many people struggle to talk about. Perhaps helping people to deal with this sort of grief is something that could help you to make some sort of mark, you've got a talent for communicating it...?

  3. Thank you.

    Sparx, I think that's where i might be headed -just trying to work out a different way to pay the mortgage so can focus on this more.
