It has been 5 years last week since the death of my mother and nearly 35 years since the death of my father and this weekend I felt very lonely. I know I am lucky to have my husband and daughter but other than that I have no family and when you are around people who all have large networks of family and friends you can feel very isolated. Studying at home can be isolating as well esp. when studying a contextual module which is so concentrated on reading and essay writing. Are all artists destined to be alone? I can hear my mum saying 'get on with it' - sometimes I miss her.
