Greatly Missed


A tunnel, unexpected. The carriage lights
we didn’t notice weren’t on prove their point
and a summer’s day is cancelled out, its greens
and scattered blue, forgotten in an instant

A Tunnel, by Paul Farley

Maya’s Granny was a woman I got to know through her blog, but never had the privilege to meet in real person. She’s been having difficulties with her health since last winter and sadly suffered a heart attack and died two days ago.

Her blog is filled with warm loving tellings of her family, funny antidotes of her life in Alaska, and outrageous rants about love, life, politics and everything in between. Maya’s Granny helped many of us bloggers find our voices, she shared so much of her life with us and she will be greatly missed.

  1. Her voice, even when she was fading, was right there caring. She will be greatly missed.
