I haven’t been around these parts much lately so was absolutely shocked and devastated by the belated news of Heather Croxon’s sudden and tragic death. Heather blogged at Bits and Books.
I’ll miss Heather’s wonderful and thoughtful book reviews (I’ll always think of her when I think of The Museum of Modern Love). I’ll miss seeing her pics of Sydney skies popping up in my Cloudstream. I’ll miss her pithy tweets.
Since hearing the news, I have been struggling to reconcile the seemingly superficial and fleeting world of online connections with the fact that real and meaningful bonds are formed. Heather and I never ‘met’ but I counted her as a friend. My thoughts and love are with her family and her ‘in real life’ friends.
