Man, the past few days have been difficult for my heart, and the past couple of weeks have just been a lot.
Most of which I haven’t put on here, I know, and while that’s been deliberate, I also realize that not sharing things that go on with me is a big part of my problem in relating to other people and forming any sort of strong bond with anyone. I cut myself off, and it shows.
Maybe I’ll learn to change that, maybe not. Either way, it won’t happen today! haha
Found out earlier that Kenny Baker passed away, which is sad and another loss to not only my childhood but to my adult life, as well. I met him at my first convention in 2005, and he was the first Star Wars actor I’d ever met. I was so overwhelmed by the experience that I called my mom right after and cried about it to her on the phone.
Good grief. 🙂
So rest in peace, Mr. Baker, and thank you for bringing the first droid I ever loved to life.
Sending strength to my amazing friend, Dakota, for he is one of the fiercest warriors I’ve ever had the honour of knowing, and I know he has it in him to win this battle against the infection in his brain right now. But sending a little extra strength his way, regardless, because every little bit helps. Love you, my friend.
And finally, to Leo the Lion, the ‘L’ in the “BLT” – although not surprised at losing you, I am nevertheless still gutted, and all the more disappointed in myself for not finding a way to get to you this summer as I’d planned. I’d had a feeling it would be my last chance, and though I don’t know what I could have done differently to get there sooner (or, as of yet, at all), a part of me still won’t forgive myself for not trying harder to make it happen. I love you and will miss you madly, even still.
So for now, I’m just going to leave this here: https://youtu.be/xicKoc8LjGE
Thank you for helping to teach us stupid humans how to love.
Even those of us who are habitually disappointing.
