The electric company sent me a sterile congratulatory letter for using 1/3 as much electricity during the 1st and 2nd quarters of this year compared to 2015.Thanks for the pleasantries but I'd rather pay and have Pops back.{#Eh}

 Hmm,I could have started a weed farm and they wouldn't have noticed the increased usage.I can just hear Pops lecturing me about not maximizing opportunities.{#Lol}

The news about Colleen Burns from Orlando who died hiking the Grand Canyon has now become international and is trending on Facebook. Unfortunately, all of the headlines are irresponsibly misleading and people are making ignorant judgements and victim-blaming. I am so sick of this. She respected this Earth so much and was not being irresponsible. It was a horrific, freak accident that her friends witnessed and now they have to witness the world making judgements about her and calling her ugly names. We are hurting. A whole community will never be the same without her. Enough already with the victim-blaming. Enough.
 

Edit:  At least Jezebel (for once) got it right:  "Many outlets are characterizing Burns’ death as a selfie gone wrong, but that is inaccurate." And for the most part, the comments have been lovely and sympathetic instead of judgmental and cruel.

Every time I look at a piece of furniture,or a weird unique tool he designed or a gun Pops made I want to ask him about it and what went on in his head to get that done.So many opportunities to be exposed to brilliance wasted.

It'll go fast, too. It's a much sought-after location with its close proximity to Cincinnati and the developed riverfront of Newport.

This was the best thread for this. although it's more touching than sad. Just something that touches one's heartstrings in a bittersweet way.
 
My sister who lost her husband (they were both filmmakers) 2 months ago wrote, at the end of her email to me today:

 
well, gotta get back to work; I'm editing a short piece on (her husband's name) at the 1993 Yamagata Film Festival (Japan) for an upcoming film festival in Honolulu.
 
it's such a joy to be with him every day, if only on the editing monitor.

My mother had dementia/Alz as well. She played piano beautifully and one day after years of being lost inside her mind she played a song on a piano at the nursing home. She also had times were she would recite the words of a song. She too seemed to forget about it as soon as it was over.

 
 
Often when I call my mom, I start singing a song that was familiar (and loved) from her lifetime, and she'll finish it with me.
 
I love that about music/songs.

I have "Alive Inside" - the documentary about that in my Netflix list—but so far, I've been saving it for when I'm absolutely ready to cry my eyes out (since it hits so close to home right now).

Y'know, I was wondering about him the other day. I don't think I'd heard about any illness. Interesting that that article, and another one on the same site, mention his struggle but never say why. Stroke, 2013, for anyone else wondering. I'm sure I heard about it at the time but forgot.
