I’m in a few Facebook groups for freelance writers. I love having access to a community of resourceful, knowledgable professionals. The best thing about these groups is the support that we all give and receive.

Unless you are a bona fide Naturist/Nudist and don’t give a fig who sees you nude, why do it in the first place? Or give others access?
After one has lost two children to SMA Type 1, and two survived, life takes on a significantly precious meaning. You move from ”zippy’ to ‘coasting’, and ever mindful of the power and frailty of human life. You move closer to that microcosm community of loyal friends, and become more philosophical and mellow about life in general, and fearful and sometimes pessimistic about life in specific (as reported in the media on a daily basis). Your surviving children are your energizers.
Is there an end to grief? Or do we just learn to conceal it better? Society believes that after a few months or even a year, parents who have lost their child won’t be grieving anymore. They are wrong.
When I spoke about this to a friend, who sadly lost her daughter to the same condition a few weeks before Sophie was diagnosed, she found that people shut her down. That suddenly nearly two years on from loosing her daughter, no one wanted to hear about her daughter anymore.

If we unearth the true motivation for writing however, we often find that there is some ‘purpose’ behind it other than strictly profiting financially from it. We like it because it allows us to use our knowledge and imagination for benefits beyond ourselves. There is something ‘cosmological’ about communicating with hundreds or thousands of people we don’t know or may never meet. Writing is a journey in space and time, that just might improve the human condition. I hope you enjoy the article that follows. I welcome your feedback.
