Three years ago today. The eleventh day of the eleventh month. I know I should be thinking about fallen men in fields, and poppies, and the horrors of war. But instead I think of Huw, and how many other battles we all have to fight.

You are certainly allowed to think about your brother. I am very sorry, and I am also thinking of you.

I was born in November, but it seems fitter as a time for departures--for Sorrow with her mist-hung cloak and bouquet of dead leaves, for "the blight man was born for."

Pax tecum.

Lovely words, Marly - very true. It is important to me to remember him.
