Words for Vanessa

Dedication to Vanessa

from Lee Dawson's MSc thesis

It feels like it was yesterday, but it has been almost one year to the day since a truly inspiring and amazing woman was taken from us, and I'm sure many of you have your own deeply personal reflections at this time. I know that my own life has been affected in ways I could never have imagined, and in some ways very profoundly so, but with these things it often pays to take a certain taoist perspective on things.

With that in mind, I have attached a dedication to her which I included in my MSc thesis when I submitted it earlier this year, a project I truly ran out of energy with after her death, but one which was inspired and guided by Vanessa from beginning to end, and it would most certainly have not have happened at all were it were not for her involvement. The words of it are my own personal ones to her, but I hope you can find some meaning in them for yourselves, should you wish to do so.
