Spike? It's you. It's really you! My therapist thought I was holding on to false hope, but…I knew you'd come back. You're like…you're like Gandalf the White, resurrected from the pit of the Balrog, more beautiful than ever. Oh…he's alive Frodo. He's alive.

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

Our wings are not tired.

I was just unpacking my Christmas bins to get decorated and came across a couple of previous year's cards from Ed, featuring Opus of course.

Wish ita could have seen his arrival at Silver Foxiness: [link]

Maybe there's a picture of him barefoot somewhere...

I went in to add a new shipping address for a Christmas purchase on Etsy, and I still have amyth's in there from the year I was her secret santa.

I was Ouise's Secret Santa one year. I sent her the Gorey Dracula paper stage set.

The WFMU lunchbox I got from Tom as my Secret Santa is prominently displayed at the new house.

The Judy Garland box I got from Laura one year is on temporary loan to a friend who was going through a tough stretch and is a huge Judy fan.

I had just met a guy who did animal portraits at a benefit and for Secret Santa I reached out and had him do a sketch of Amyth’s Lulu, who had passed recently. I think that was my favorite Santa.

I always remember ita's birthday because she shares it with my sister. Not the only day of the year when I think of her, but a day I always think of her. Just a couple days ago I saw a young man resting in front of a Jamaican grocery drinking a Ting, and I smiled.
