Mourning

Today is most of Australia’s “public holiday” to mourn the passing of the Queen. At first everyone was like “Yeah, public holiday”, but it’s getting weird. Because people are cancelling cancer scans etc. Which is so not cool. It was also made the Thursday, because on Friday, Victorians have a public day off for the Football Grand Final, haha

How Aussie, haha.

It was “nice” to watch the Funeral. It was so simple and lovely. The important parts were all there. Even before the funeral, funerals just make you think. No matter whose it is. Life, love, death…all the things.

Funerals, no matter the age are a chance to look at your own life and reflect. If you’re 9 or 99, another day is another gift, that not everyone gets.

Leaving Time

Generally I don’t actually like writing reviews and such, mainly because I think with my dyslexia I can’t always think of the right words to write and use to make it sound like I know what I’m talking about. I love to read and I am always reading a book, sometimes it’ll take me a week, sometimes it can take me a month or so. I’m usually a fast reader, but I just have to find the time to read.

However, saying that, I just LOVE all of Jodi Picoult books, I have read all of them now am eagerly anticipating her next novel.

At the moment though I have just finished readingĀ Leaving Time. Leaving Time is about the young daughter of Alice Metcalf searching for her missing mother, an accomplished researcher into how elephants grieve and mourn. With the help of both a psychic and a retired police officer, this books takes the most interesting twists and turns. It also looks into how Elephants feel and they grieve and mourn.

It’s what I love most about Jodi Picoult books, there is always a twist that you just do not seem coming, and this one had one of the biggest twists of all! I literally looked up and went “Huh” read on and was happy to discover that I did not see it coming.
