This Box

I keep a small amount of her ashes in this box that she brought back from Malawi for me when I was small. The rest are in a nourishing bluebell wood just outside of Bristol. 

We interspersed her funeral celebration with a number of songs which feel like hers to me. But if I had to choose it would be Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes. It's the song we committed her body to at the crematorium, although she was definitely not in the coffin. I remember feeling that she was dancing around the room.- Abbie Hastings, Musician, Bristol
