there were a lot of people at the wake. i mean, a lot. it was wonderful to see all his friends and family members there. i got a little choked up when i saw his daughter, his beautiful ringleted daughter, who has so much of him in her face, her eyes especially, twinkling with something-you-don’t-know.

chad and i drove home, quiet. thick clouds had rolled in over the mountains and we crossed the bridge with the sunset, not knowing if home was still on the other side, content to not know.

this week holds so much emotion, so much life, that i feel full, always on the verge of laughing or crying or just sipping wind. right now, though, i have to sleep; more life awaits tomorrow.

g’bye, saki. i will miss you.

I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
