Two of my very best friends passed away some time ago - they were best friends as well and I miss them dreadfully.
K and L - the sort of friends you could laugh and cry with and share your innermost thoughts.
I was thinking of K - died so young and suddenly - as I sat on the bench she gave me for the garden before she left Zimbabwe.
The bench is at the side of the swimming pool and I often go there to think and meditate - looking into the pool almost using it as a crystal ball.
I saw a mist rise from the pool and before I knew it I was talking to L - she appeared as a head and shoulders figure and he head movements and laughter were just as they had been when she was alive. we talked on may subjects including her Husband's remarriage - which she was pleased about - and a dear friend of our who was ill. She told me this friend would not live for 18 months.
Suddenly L - our dear friend who had been stung to death by bees - appeared - she was laughing and joking as she had done in life.
The whole instance must have lasted for about 15 minutes - until they faded away back into the depths of the pool.
An interested and enlightening experience - I hope it happens again
