“Where all is shadow and darkness and a above me a dark sky unfurls; And all the love I’ve thrown away and lost I’m longin’ for again”
Today I miss my best friend Sue, who would have loved the weekend I just had. Here I am, twenty years after her death, wishing she’d been there, seeing how far I’ve come into this obsession we started together. You would have been amazed Sue, truly amazed, delighted, and having so much fun.
As I walked the beach Sunday, I remembered the jar of sand we collected long ago, that first time I walked the Asbury Park shore. Life will never be the same without you, but it will always be worth it.
My heart goes out to all my friends in NJ, NY, CT, MA, PA, and RI. Instead of a photo today, I send my love and prayers.
