Today is the anniversary of Connie’s birth. I think of her often and treasure the time we had together.
A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.
I saw that on Facebook, too Laura. Every time I go to Ravelry, I think of Connie.
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.
Remembering omnis_audis on the anniversary of his birth. BC was with us far too short a time and made a profound impact on so many lives.
I missed this post earlier, Laura, but thank you. I thought of BC a lot on his birthday this year.
Today let's give a thought and smile in remembrance of Ginger's birthday. I think of her often and am sorry she was here too briefly.
It's always a little bittersweet when I'm scrolling through FB memories and find a comment from Ginger, or Ed or Connie.
But, now it's more sweet than bitter and I do like seeing their words commenting on something so many years ago.
I was going through a box and found a Christmas card Ed sent me maybe 15 years ago. He was a good one.
