I have added the D’s to the Discreet Dictionary. Among them is Death. Sophie’s mum died since I last blogged and I have felt unable to say anything meaningful about her going – especially as Sophie is currently my only reader….
The definition of death in my dictionary is necessarily trite and unhelpful in the current context. Although a quote from Ben Marcus that I use –
to empty the body of knives
– does seem somewhat less banal.
