Posthumous work by my daughter Julia, who was known on Abc as Overthetop1.
Overthetop1 (Julia Macpherson) This piece was written by my daughter Julia and typed up with great care. I'm afraid my own abilities are more limited, so the layout may not do it justice. However, I wanted to post it as it's highly topical, and Julia was a great student of all things connected with WW1 - in particular, the Battle of the Somme. Coral Jane (seashore)
Forgive my self-indulgence today - 6th August is the birthday of my baby son (who lived a very short time). Some years ago, after the break-up of my then-relationship, Julia (Overthetop1) wrote a short poem for me, connecting the two events. It's still really important to me for my daughter to live on through her writings - so here it is:
Another piece by my daughter, Julia (Overthetop1). It's important to me that she lives on through her writing so I am wading through a fat file - some scribbles on backs of envelopes, others neatly typed. Not an easy task, but an essential one. Coral Jane (seashore)
Another of my late daughter Julia's writings (Overthetop1). A dark moment in a relationship.
Another piece by my late daughter, Julia (Overthetop1). I would like to make it clear that Julia was a very caring person, and this was, and is, in no way intended to cause offence to those who don't share her beliefs at the time this was written. Coral (seashore)
Yet another of Julia's posthumous pieces (Overthetop1). Hard-hitting, but that's the way she was.
