You’re starting with randomness. Cinco de Mayo is always two days before your birthday. You don’t feel like celebrating.
Craig Arnold is missing on some island in Japan. Because of Craig’s disappearance, you’re finally starting a blog. On April 26th, the day he disappeared, he wrote this: “Danger has a way of cutting through melancholy, the real fear blinding you to the fear dimly imagined. If you could only always just have escaped death, you would never be sad again.” Craig’s blog is here: Volcano Pilgrim ..it’s like he knew, like he saw it coming.
It’s been a crazy week, but “crazy” isn’t the right word. Strange is better: the Kentucky Derby – a 50:1 shot, Shannon’s death from breast cancer, Kevin’s plans to move to New Mexico…Greg’s email out of the blue as always…
The main thing is, you’re writing again.
