Christmas melancholy & compassion

It's that particular time of the year... Christmas is coming. Some like it, some don't. Some try to be happy with all costs, others don't.

I wonder how you see it?


Here is a little outtake:


"When those anniversaries, special holidays or milestones arrive, we are reminded who isn't here anymore.

I can't stop thinking that it is the second Christmas without Dad. It's like with every date I look at - automatically, I think that that was before or after his death.

The intensity of memories wakes up again.

Thoughts like "he would have done this" and "he would be excited about that" - are popping up constantly. And yes, I wish I could be more thankful for my time with Dad, believe me. I am and will work on it until I'm there. But I also don't want to feel ashamed when there are times when I just want to be able to say: I am sad. And I miss him so much."


Duration: 13 minutes
