KS Alternative Factor

Weird moment today...

Today, I was going through the various gifts I've bought for people for Christmas. I buy gifts throughout the year for people, stash them, then take them out in December and do an inventory to see what else I need to get.

I had shown signs of ambition earlier this year, because not only had I purchased some gifts, I'd actually wrapped a few.

One of them was for my friend K, who passed away in August.

I couldn't even remember what I'd bought for her. I unwrapped it.
She loved miniatures. I then remembered buying this gift for her in the spring. It's a miniature "blender", like those cake blenders moms always used to make cakes and frosting. She would have absolutely loved it.

It was so... I don't know quite how to express this. Here this little gift, and she's gone.

Hugs to everyone.

Thanks! And big hugs to you too!

i'm embarassed that this idea even occurred to me

Would I be slime incarnate if I used your thoughts in a story? Inspiration comes from odd places, and I'll totally respect your wishes if you'd prefer that I not.

Sorry if this seems insensitive *blush; runs away*

Re: i'm embarassed that this idea even occurred to me

Go right ahead. That's not insensitive in the least. We get inspiration from many sources, and that includes each other's lives. I'll look forward to reading your story. Hugs!

Thank you. Thank you so much... and I've just seen TWOK, too.

When I write it, do you want me to save it for one of your future zines? Since it sort of came from you....

Re: i'm embarassed that this idea even occurred to me

Yes, I'd love it if you could send it to me for a future zine. Thanks!

Re: i'm embarassed that this idea even occurred to me

OK, I'll do that. Now I need to think of what the present is. But first, I must finish my knitting femslash. *evil grin*
The moments when a perhaps slightly fading loss becomes sharp and bitter again are very painful reminders for those who remain to mourn. But mourning, and remembering, are good things, if sad. Big {{HUGS}}.
Thanks so much - yes, it's true. Remembering is a good thing. Hugs!
