This morning, a neighbour died due to a electric shock in the forest just opposite our country house.
I hadn’t had a corpse so close since my days as a student in the Medicine Faculty…

And this evening we are having a bands festival in the village.
Life goes on.

  1. Oh dear, I’m sorry for your neighbour and for everyone involved. Talking and thinking about death is such a taboo that it always comes as a shock to everyone when someone else dies. Will you be ok? You know where to find me.

    I wish you and us and everyone some brigher moments in the next week!

    Take care,
    Frauke

  2. Hi Frauke, thanks for your nice words 😀 Anyway, here in Galicia we are used to deal with death in quite a natural way. Now we live a long time, but I guess we cannot forget that a lot of young people used to die everyday because of poverty until 40 years ago. In Andalussia they would be all screaming like mad (no offense intended), but here we just watch in silence how the corpse is moved to the morgue and stay in silence next to the dead person’s relatives. This man was 70 years old, so even himself knew that these are things that happens. So I’m ok about that. Anyway, thanks again for your support :D, I may really need you one day, believe me!

  3. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that…
    Death is a terrible thing – three of my cats have died and I was so terribly sad that I really don’t want to immagine what it would be like if any of my friends or relatives would have died. I hope you’ll be okay soon.
