Today is a sad day. Back in February I wrote Ferry across the Mersey « mrscmonkey’s Blog. It’s about the fabulous man Krakatoa married after my parents divorced.
Today is full of events. This morning the ferry was stopped midway across the Mersey so his ashes could be scattered; this afternoon there is his book launch; and tonight a celebration party. My husband and I were invited and Krakatoa wasn’t. My husband has gone to represent us both.
There’s a little app on iPhone that lets you see where friends and family are and I managed to catch him just as the ferry was midway crossing the Mersey.
I’m sad because I want to be there and it’s my fault I’m not. Social Anxiety and depression have got in my way. I just didn’t know what to say when people said to me ‘how did you know Brian?’. I don’t want to admit that I’m Krakatoa’s daughter, someone they all hate, but that is my link to him.
I’m very sad.
