Remembering

rjcb3's picture

It's been a year.

...and I still miss Jason.

I still have the remainder of that skein of Vanna's Choice. I just don't know what I can possibly knit with it. I guess it will stay in the Michael's bag with the sheet of paper that had our project printed on it -- along with his picture.

The whole world chose Jason, but, you know what? -- he chose us. Among the last people in the world that he could have had anything to do with in his last days, he chose us.

...and then my thoughts turn inward. I still think of our whole mass coming together last year and I think of all of the people in my own crazy life that I lead -- the ones I've lost and the ones I still have...I'm so glad that I have you guys.

Let's light a candle, say a prayer, just sit and think of him while listening to him conduct Mahler's 5th, or whatever -- but let's remember our Jason even if it's just for a wee moment today.

Yes he is often in my mind. I will, just the same, take a moment to sit silently and talk to Jason.
