Hair

September 27th: Thank you for all your texts and comments over the past few weeks both here and via email and mobile. I really appreciate them, I really do, but I don’t want anyone worrying about me. I’m fine. Absolutely fine…

On Monday, I used Gail’s car to go to work. As I was driving, I kept seeing something flash on the passenger window but could never see what it was. It was very distracting, but nothing appeared to be there when I looked. Then I stopped at some traffic lights, with the full might of this wonderful Indian Summer blazing into the window. Then I could see it. It looked like a crack in the glass that the light was causing to refract into a bright red. Looking closer though, I then realised it wasn’t a crack at all, it was a hair. A very bright red hair, reflecting the sunlight in quite an astonishing way. About 8″ long, it was one of Gail’s and it was hanging from the rubber door seal and snaking down the glass. I’m not sure why it’s there. I’ve had the car cleaned since July. I looked for it when I stopped but the trouble is, with no outside sunlight it was very difficult to see, in fact several times I was sure it wasn’t there at all and had fallen off.

Thursday afternoon. Hot and sunny, I got into the car with a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass to capture that hair. I got it too. So fine outside the sunlight that, with it in a plastic bag, I can barely see it. But it’s there. It’s going in the box with her ashes….

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, I’m fine. Nothing too odd, weird or off-kilter here. Move along please…
