This video explains the mythos behind the Hermes Birkin bag. I’m posting it because Katy owned a Birkin. As I’m writing this I’m wondering what happened to it after she passed away, and realising I am probably a terrible person for even thinking about such a thing. I would guess, that she sold it to pay her rent. That seems the most plausible thing. If she did still have it, I expect the landlord gave it to a charity shop with the rest of her stuff when he cleared out the apartment. I feel a bit sick even just thinking about this. When someone in their twenties dies your brain can’t really process it properly, and you just think of them as being away somewhere. I suppose I deal with it by thinking about trivial things like what handbag she used to carry. After she died I became kind of obsessed with these little details from her life, it’s my tribute to her.
I’m off to do a meditation now. Big fan of Tara Brach. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHhDCW4Q1Rc
