To Her

Well, I am back after a week of an internet less world. It was calming.
When coming home yesterday, I checked my e-mail and found a message telling me that a fellow blogger had died the day before.
Kati was a magnificent artist. She was creative and courageous: she wrote, made videos, took photos, and sung with her strong voice. She was the one I got the encouragement to dare to sing on a video.
She gave me inspiration in so many ways, and although we never met in real, the years we were in contact here in blogosphere, made me feel I had found a person I could call a friend.
Kati had left a comment in my Finnish main blog during my absence, a poem response to a poem I had written. That poem of hers inspired me to make a video, a tribute to an artist, to the memory of Kati.
The English translation of the poem appears at the end of the video.
Kati suffered from bipolar disorder. She was very tired, and now she has found peace.

Sorry to hear bout Kati's departure. In the blog world, however, Kati lives on in her text, images, and art. That's a form of immortality unto itself.

by the way, who's the girl in the video clip?

SusuPetal said...

Kenneth, I'm glad Kati's work remains.
The girl in the video wants to stay anonymous.
