Why footnotes? The * symbol indicates some kind of additional information, a footnote, a matter that may need further consideration or explanation. And this is, in part, why I write, because my life continues along and sometimes I need to say ‘hang on a minute’ and look again at what has just occurred and try and get my head and heart round it. To try and absorb more fully the meaning of the last few paragraphs. Sometimes it helps to read a paragraph a few times over to better understand it and then make a few footnotes so you don’t forget what you’ve learned.
In early 2020 I had one of those life experiences that make you reflect deeply. My response to this was to start to write things down - some 'footnotes' if you like. I shared this with a friend and then, following the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, she suggested I create an online space to share some of these footnotes with others. Which is this space here - footnotes on life as I interpret it, an offering of words from my heart to yours.
