Dawn Foster has died

Man, horrible. Her articles were always so good, and seemed a really good egg on twitter. One of the good ones.

didn’t know her personally but think i had one or two very brief twitter interactions with her over the years, but the most recent was only like a month ago. feels weird.

obviously huge condolences to anyone who did know her.

Shit. It’s weird how you don’t notice the absence of something, so didn’t’ twig when she wasn’t tweeting.

Like the others, her honesty and lack of self pity in her tweets about illness/hospital really belied the fact how bad/serious it was. Genuine loss. RIP.

Quite surreal looking through my notifications on there and seeing her five clapping emojis in response to a really laboured joke I made about Twin Peaks and football just a week or so ago

I don’t mind falling back on a cliché here, the world is a poorer place without her.

It is a cliché but here it is absolutely true. Losing her makes you really aware how desperately lacking in voices like hers our public discourse is.
