Oh fuck you, 2016! George Michael was another one of those singers whose songs travelled with me from teenage years to adulthood, revealing whole new aspects as I grew up. Very sad to be waking up to the news of his passing this morning :(

Cowboys and angels' is one of my favourite songs of his...



And I had to include 'Faith', because it seems essential right now.

It's been a shitty few weeks. Personally speaking work is really, really challenging at the moment with a lot of interpersonal conflict and drama I'm having to mediate, and lot of organisational change that requires eighty million forms to make it happen. Globally speaking, the disaster of the US election results is opening up a cold pit of dread inside me for the environment, for the people, for anyone who is different, for anything that isn't economic growth. I'm looking for the strength and active hope in small things now, in the people around me, in how my neighbour took in a rescue cat, how I'm told I'm doing a good job at this Programme Directorship lark, how mum's test results were all clear, in the upcoming trip to New Orleans, and the small positive differences I can make.

But this post isn't really about the above, although it really is one in the long line of devastating things 2016 has thrown our way. I woke up this morning to the news of Leonard Cohen's passing. It's not really a surprise, given his advanced age, but it still cuts me like a knife to the heart. I can't begin to explain what his poetry, set to music or not, means to me. I am absolutely heart-broken. I can't bring myself to listen to these at the moment because if I do I'll just sit here and cry and I can't do that right now because I have a lot of work to get through but these are some my favourite ones and I know I will return to them, when time has softened a blow little.

A favour please...

[livejournal.com profile] trialia is a a dear friend of mine. We met through fandom many years ago, quickly met in real life and shared a city and lots of great times for several years. Despite dealing with multiple disabilities and medical issues, she is one of the most cheerful, kind and selfless people I know. When I was living in Manchester we saw each other regularly, watched movies, geeked out, cat sat for each other etc. Living close by also meant I was able to help her out with housework or other everyday tasks that are easy for me but difficult for her.

Right now, my friend is struggling, financially and in coping with the state of her home. And it's killing me that because of distance, I can't just pop over for a couple of hours to help out.

Please can I ask you to take a look at [livejournal.com profile] trialia's GoFundMe page, consider donating a little something and/or spreading the word.

Thank you.
Kat
