i miss my dear friend tremendously today. the corn is so tall already and the sunsets are deep orange.
days like this (hot, oppressive humidity, hope in the air for better days) remind me of you. you were always a big fan of hope. i am too. maybe that is why i miss you so much.
it was so great to have that common thread to draw strength from. somehow, just knowing that we shared a deeply personal belief that things are meant to be and no matter how bad it is, this too shall pass, made the difficult times easier to shoulder.
i cannot reach out into the abyss and hold your hand, but I offer up a smile to the universe for you.
