Worldwide Candle Lighting (TCF)

This is a very quick post to say that after six weeks on the road we have arrived safely back in Mexico City where we took part in the 19th Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony organised by The Compassionate Friends.  This annual event takes place at 7pm local time on 13th December creating a wave of light travelling all round the globe.   Last night we remembered Josh and all the children whose families we have filmed as part of our documentary.

And for those who have been eagerly anticipating news of our journey through Central America since the end of our principle filming period for  The Good Grief Project, please accept our abject apologies.   We have been busy travelling and generally having some very enjoyable not to say quite unique experiences as we have bussed it back from Costa Rica to Mexico.   We will write these up in the next few days.

With love

Jane and Jimmy
