This past week had major struggles, and I'm having trouble processing them.
Of course, there were good things, including a completely ridiculous superhero ensemble, some solid work on Instructables, a successful vocal recital and great help from great friends. The big ugly 2 out shadowed almost everything else, though. Dave's mom is dying quickly, and one of my very best friends was killed in a hate crime. I will be able to tell stories of Steve Nelson and why he was such a formative person in my life, but not right now. It's too fresh.
Steve, you are my hero. You are wonderful, fabulous, flamboyant and could piss off a saint. You taught me how to embrace people's flaws, even my own.
I miss you terribly.
