My lovely friend Poen, who lives in Tanzania with her husband, went to Zanzibar last week and offered to light a candle for Molly.
I thought it was an amazing gesture. And if anyone else wants to light a candle for her in other parts of the world, please do be my guest - I would love that. I don't want her to ever be forgotton.
She sent me the pictures from a deserted beach, where they raised a glass for her. I can't help staring at the pictures.
These pictures are the only tangible things I have of Molly. that and the few things I have in her memory box, like her foot and hand prints, and other small tokens. But that's all it is, just tokens.
These candle pictures are haunting, and I could stare at them all day as it makes me feel just that tiny bit closer to her. And anything that makes me feel closer to her, helps my heart. Even if it hurts like hell.
Thank you Poen and Niallo. They are beautiful. Molly;s spirit lives on in Africa.
