Archive for April, 2011


Hello kids. Remember me?

It’s been a while since I’ve visited the cave, primarily because I’ve been so involved in so many things that I have barely been able to find myself these days.

As we stand on the edge of April, I am brought back to my memories. I lean over the precipice of sorrow; April 2 marks another anniversary of the day that my most excellent friend, Don Buchanan, left this existence. I am saddened still to know that I will not have a chance while I am still here to see him again, to laugh with him again, to enjoy his warm and sharp wit.

Since the beginning of the year I have been taking a class at my university; this week we were given an assignment to write a psalm of lament. I wrote my psalm about my sorrow (and general upset and anger at Death) about you, my friend. Know that you are loved and remembered and that I look forward to the day that we will meet again on the other side of the River. I am sure that you will be there, somewhere.
