Dept. of Memories

Oct. 27, 2013

I was doing something earlier this afternoon, when all of a sudden I thought, "It must be close to the anniversary date of Mum's death. Jeez, how could I forget?"

I didn't. My subconscious must have realized that today is the second anniversary of her death.

I still check in with her regularly in my head. By now, I've been able to watch a video bit taken of her during our last visit, something I couldn't do until recently. Life is still very much a "before Mum died" and "after Mum died" thing, but it doesn't loom as large for me as it once did.

I miss her, though.

Love to you. And I have to say that I respect, honor, and am a little envious of the close relationship you have with your mum.

Thanks for the love - and I think that you are (and have been for a long time) the kind of mother to your children that mine was to me. So somewhere out there, there are people saying to Carl, Luke and the others that they are just a little envious of the relationships they have with you.

Much love back to you in this stressful time.

Thanks!

(And, oooo, A Shadow of the Tower icon! I really need to watch that, don't I?)

Oh, I don't know - it very much depends on your tolerance for BBC 1970s theatricality! I wondered what I'd done and whether it was worth it even for Mr Collings when I first watched it. Just because it and JM then won me over completely doesn't mean that other people will like it.

You'd be surprised at how high my tolerance for 70s BBC is. I did, after all, live through and often love Canadian Broadcasting Corporation 70s dramas. They had a similar mise-en-scene. Heh. And of course, we did get our share of BBC imports.

Besides, James Maxwell has always caught my eye, as has, of course, Mr. Collings ....

Oh, yes - I mean, you were fine with S&S! It's just that, having watched a lot of old TV for a year at that point, including S&S, I nearly tripped up over the first episode or so of this until it got going. David Collings is in eps 3 &4, and ep3 actually is one of his best performances, I think. And episode 5 is a very unusual and clever piece of TV. But then it has a couple of duff eps in the middle before picking up again. So, unlike some of the old things I really love, it's a bit hard to recommend to people unless they're especially interested in that kind of old school BBC historical drama - or, of course, if they happen to be interested in James Maxwell! ;-)

Thank you; I know you have a good relationship with your Mother, and I know you treasure the time you have with her.
