August 1, 2012


Tap, this thing on?

Ahem. So....spending most of today, August 1, thinking about my best friend, who is so deeply missed, and trying to find a way to honor his memory.

And then it occured to me: Oh! Tobacco Brunette!

No one loved TB like he did.  It seems only right to bring her back - a resurrection of sorts with just maybe the teensiest bit more discretion.

I know most of you have moved on to wordpress and then on again to twitter, tumblr, pinter-insta-what-the-fuck-have-you, but hopefully you'll find your way back here.

I miss you.

Years ago I saved TB as a favorite. Now, clicking through some old favorites, I clicked on you and bitterly thought to myself, "Don't. It's just a painful reminder of her absence." And holy shit, a post from August.

I miss your words. I'm here (still with no blog of my own - just a former sometime commenter) if you come back. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Hoping all is well with you and your family. I'd love to know how you're all doing these days.

See you around?

(I didn't intend to comment anonymously. (Unless I didn't comment anonymously and did actually type in my name, which I do not recal doing. If I did, please, ignore me. I am for shit these days.) I got all excited and forgot to tell you who I am before I hit publish. I'm Karen. Not sure if you'd remember me or not. I commented a few times on the subjects of neighborhoods in "transition," growing up in an Italian family, being Catholic schooled, etc.. Maybe help jog your memory a bit.)
