And then I remembered he was gone.
It'll take time to adjust to that.
And I have a local friend who is ... not my friend anymore. We're not on Square One. We're on Square Zero. And no one's moving. And I can't adjust to that, either. Rent will be in town next week, and I wanted to call and invite him because I know he'd enjoy it, but... I don't do that anymore.
The face of my community is changing. Two people gone, and a few that I rarely see these days. New people coming in, which is a blessing; thevault and copycatjsh, satia, enchant, etc.... but that doesn't erase the little pangs of loss.
Don't wanna cry again.
