On the first anniversary of her death last night, we released the last of Mum’s ashes to the wind and tides into the setting sun at Plimmerton Beach. One of her favourite places as a child and in her later years. We followed it with a tasty meal of fish and chips in the sunset, another favourite of hers. It was a symbolic release of her free spirit to the elements, a very beautiful thing. Her ashes were subsumed into the oneness in an instant and she had returned home. She rests in peace and her spirit remains with us.
