State of the 'song
I really need to remember: one drink if not actively dancing. Two drinks only if actively dancing.

Two drinks in fairly rapid succession when not dancing is not a good idea! (For me. I'm not judging you.) Oof. If I had a sick day to use, I would hie my ass back to bed.

Was good to be out and social and raise a glass and talk a bit about irana.

I'm finding it hard to write today. I feel like I want to do up an essay about irana, but everything she was couldn't be encompassed in one essay.

So I will say this: I think about her just about every day.

There are a lot of people in my brainspace, so not everyone gets a significant amount of airtime! But irana. She was my sister, we were each others' muses, we were each others' sole support in a way I still won't disclose because some secrets we keep forever. I have a few people I call my sisters, and I carry each of them with me that way. Just a little dedicated headspace.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh!" he whispered.

"Yes, Piglet?"

"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

A little thought of grace every day, for my sisters, my loves, the people of my heart; just a touch that I know you can't feel, but I can. A little bit of thankfulness that I have you.

Like I said, not everyone gets as big a headspace as irana! But she was big, big in voice and laugh and self.

And a year later, it's rare that a day goes by without a thought of her, even as simple as "irana would love that song."

irana, you are gone, but your spark remains. Because I know I'm not the only one. I see people posting on your Facebook wall all the time, little things just like this. Because you were/are so loved. We keep you with us, by now in thought alone. We keep a little bit of you not-gone in our hearts.

One year.

EDIT: What I wrote last year.

Daily Science
(No Link Soup today, because my workday was weird yesterday and I hadn't much time at home.)
It appears that the supposed oldest examples of life on our planet -- 3.5 billion-year-old bacteria fossils found in Australian rock called Apex Chert -- are nothing more than tiny gaps in the rock that are packed with minerals.

Work. FINALLY HAIRCUT. Then s00j and omnisti arrive yay!

Ahh the pooh quote... brought tears to my eyes. but still happy tears on the whole. I lost my dear friend and sister of the heart, Lori on Xmas eve and I will forever associate pooh anythign with her. (also Snoopy and Peanuts and Christmas Story and build a bear lol, she was one special lady)
This quote? I might be borrowing it...

You should have been dancing.
17th-Mar-2011 01:34 pm (UTC)
I should have. Shy night. Maybe Heroes?

I'm very sorry that you lost such a good friend, but glad for everything that you've said and done in her honor.

I've been thinking of irana lately. I miss her and I never got to meet her in person. :/

Oh, good lord. Has it really been a year already?

"Time flies without you."

Time flies anyway. It started speeding up as soon as I hit high school. I'm not exactly sure where this entire last year went.

Speaking of passing on, though, I just found out that a professional colleague of mine looks to have committed suicide at the beginning of the week. *sigh*

I'm so sorry. :(
