RIP @Clubnette aka Skittles
The world lost a shining star this week. We’d never met and yet Nette had touched our hearts for years, watching and laughing and encouraging as JHubz and I first interacted on Twitter and later as we married.
But Twitter’s not real; It’s such a silly thing to say, especially to us who met and married from meeting there. Love, compassion, connection are all real, wherever you encounter them and some incredibly beautiful souls have come into my life through Twitter.
I will miss Nette’s encouraging words, her crazy colourful eye shadow and her thought provoking writing. I did not know her well and my heart goes out to all those who did. What I knew was a person who was beautiful inside and out, she was kind and gentle and kookie and the world is less than it was with her in it.
I felt compelled to write, to express myself in the format she loved so much. To urge you to Hug, call, kiss, email whatever it is you do and let those you love know it. To look in the mirror and remind yourself of your worth. Life is precious and fleeting and as much as we may control our destiny, we have no control over how long we will get to live it.
Nette, this one’s for you Xx
Memories drift slowly downwards.
Until the pale knowledge of truth is forgotten.
How long have I stood.
