Inara: I think she looks adorable. Mal: Yeah, but I never said it.


ita's thread

A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.

Memorial birthday today for our dear friend DXM. I think of Ed often and among other moments remember his kindness in offering to talk with my son about chemistry when he was considering that as a career. A warm huggy big brother.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

I was missing his wisdom just the other day. (raises glass) to absent friends.

From Laura via email... remembering the wonder that was ita on her birthday today. I think of her so often, this amazing presence of a human whom I never even met in person. I'm grateful to live in a time when this place can exist and make such things possible.

I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul—Calvin and Hobbs

My nephew gave me one of those digital picture frames for Christmas. I've hooked up several photos full of pictures, including the ones of my trip to France with Amyth (and two Buffista spirit babies). It's a lovely experience to look over and see Amyth, and think of the trip.

That’s so nice, Calli. I’ve been struggling big time of late, for a few reasons, and I keep thinking about how graciously Amy dealt with her illness and it gives me a bit of perspective. And I miss her. I have a hoodie from when we saw THE FORCE AWAKENS in NYC, and I’ve been wearing it so much lately, just to keep her close.

Today is the anniversary of Connie’s birth. I think of her often and treasure the time we had together.

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

I saw that on Facebook, too Laura. Every time I go to Ravelry, I think of Connie.

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

I've been watching Star Trek: Discovery and seeing all these women on screen is a gift.

But Oyin Olajado - a Nigerian-born Canadian - getting in the ring and shifting her body language from "Wait, how fight?" to "Hello, I am Joann Owosekun and I'll be kicking your ass today", taking down someone so much bigger than she was in about 10 seconds? I sat on the sofa and cried and finally managed "I wish ita could see this. She'd be critiquing the whole thing, but she'd be grinning as she did it."

Oh, too true. I love Owo, and I wish they would give her more to do.

I miss so many of us, but in this particular moment I’m reminded of Ginger keeping us all calm and informed when the massive earthquake and tidal waves hit Japan and its nuclear facility. I’d look to her now in these scary moments of Putin’s aggressive assault on the Ukrainian nuclear plant. Sigh. Sigh for all of it, the losses we’ve felt, and the losses others are feeling right this moment.
