A friend of Bridget asked that we take a moment and read some of her poetry as this is what she would have wanted. Bridget’s writings can be found on her blog “Broken Machines”.
Here is one that I found to be especially profound to me.
“I plan to learn everything I can, then forget it and start over”
“I went for a walk to see some tall buildings that I had not seen in months. I knew them well and was not unused to their scale, but I felt somehow smaller than before, or they larger. Novelty is a great thief of scale, and there is no great difference between things we have never seen and things we have forgotten.”
This is one of many Bridget wrote. Perhaps you might find one that affects you too.
Rest In Peace Bridget Flack
