Good-bye, Red

I only just now figured out why I colored my hair mahogany red for two years. It was the color of my friend who died. I was trying to keep her alive in that way. The second anniversary of her death is this week, and I went back to my normal color because I can grieve her without this prop now. I have started talking about her more, so I think the grief is moving to another stage.

This was all completely unconscious.
