An Interactive Twilight Experience.
These past weeks have been quite stressful. It’s the first time I ever have to juggle between friends needing support, work at the store, being here for a brother in need and patrols in the woods. Having a friend losing someone they care about deeply isn’t easy. I always promised Caroline and Mark I’d be there if they needed me for anything and that’s what I did. When they called me to tell me their grand father passed away, I knew that Caroline would need both me and Mark around. She was really close to him. Thankfully we weren’t in the busy season at the store so I had a fairly good amount of work done ahead.
If there’s one thing my change has brought me is that even if you’re well organised for something, at times one thing can change completely your plans. I even couldn’t talk to mom for a while and unfortunately we weren’t able to be together for both our birthdays. I finally managed to find some time to prepare something for mom, which she truly enjoyed along with the evening together we had.
I know the next few weeks won’t be easy with summer coming and bringing the tourist season, but I know that all of us here are there for each other, and I know that our elders past will be here to protect me and my brothers. I think I did notice a new spirit around while in patrol. I know Colin’s grand father is still around in his own way to watch over us, just like the others before him are. Sometimes I wonder if my brothers feel it like I do. If so, perhaps it will help Colin in his grief, knowing his grand father is still around us, joined by our past elders.
