"We are all prone to behave as if our friends are as enduring as the stability they contribute to our uncertain lives. The death of one punches a hole in that delusion. It leaves us clinging, for a time, to our protective bubbles, staring off into the void, until other friends rally to patch the communal leak." - Perry Guthrie
We said goodbye to our friend Perry today. He died unexpectedly this week during a procedure, that I suppose many would think was routine. He was brilliant and funny and kind. His death has left a hole. These past few months our community of friends has had many leaks......I'm ready for them to cease for awhile.
