Its been a while since I have been able to sit down and write, although writing is usually my way of expressing and releasing my emotions, thoughts and feelings…these past few days I have been numbed. Numbed by the loss of my beautiful cousin, Sandrine. For those of you who know Sandrine, know and understand what I mean when I say she was “beautiful”. Her voice was angelic, her eyes had the ability to capture you and her laughter wrapped its self around you like a warm hug. Sandrine was a couple of years older than me, and was one of my main mentors in life. The thing was, I don’t even think she knew it.
