If you love someone, you’re going to lose them at a certain time. You have to accept that Sorrow will be there. You better make real good friends with her, because she’s going to be there, especially as you get older. And after a while, Sorrow becomes the deepest part of the ocean. You know, there are times that Sorrow tells the dirtiest jokes … She really does. I think Joy can be really snotty sometimes, too. I think she says, “Everybody wants me. I’m the belle of the Ball.”
Apparently she often personifies emotions like that. She was talking at the time about going through her relationship troubles, and she found she had to sit down and have a drink with Sorrow and listen to what Sorrow had to say. She learnt a lot. She also claims that Sorrow has the best shoe collection.
Here’s one of the songs from her new Christmas song. What gorgeous hair.
What are you avoiding in your life? Could you sit down and have a drink with it? Or maybe just start with a quick chat in the hallway?

A lovely little ego-boost this morning. I don’t usually hang around at Twitter but while I was there this morning this popped up from Freya Pickard:
The Letters by Fiona Robyn is brilliant! Beautifully written with an extremely clever plot! I highly recommend it!
Oh, I thought. That’s me! How very odd it is, having my books out in the world, finding their ways into strangers hands and making friends with them. It’s rather wonderful, isn’t it? It’s nice to get the 53p from the sale, so do go and buy one for yourself (or if you’re in the US), but what REALLY makes my day is other people loving my characters. It’s like introducing two of your bestest friends and seeing them hit it off. I wonder if I’ll ever get tired of it?
Thanks Freya! Thanks Snowbooks! Thanks muse!
PS this is definitely the last thing now. I’ve got funky twitter backgrounds now, come follow @fiona_robyn, @handfulofstones and @readthaw if you haven’t already…
