On a day very similar weather wise to today, four years ago, it was Rosie’s funeral. Remembering her, and remembering that day, with the tears and the laughter and the beauty and the love, I googled Rosie. Like you do. And discovered that she/her blog features in two academic books from the University of Aarhus.
One is about how people become entrepreneurs and get social value from the way they deal with terminal illnesses; the other is the development of keeping memories of people alive by continuing their blogs. What??? Shouldn’t our permission have been sought, or something? I suppose not. But this means that Kilburn (as she’s called) must feature in some student essays somewhere. How strange. And what an unexpected way of not forgetting her.
In further strangeness, this morning at the gym (yes, yes, unlikely I know but after ‘having a fall’ earlier in the year, I decided to take things in hand) I was asked the date. Which made me sad. And as I battled that one, for a few seconds, ‘You’re Amazing’ came on the playlist. Like she was there.
