I was just thinking of Stephanie before going to bed and remembering that it's been a year since she died. It's incredible that the time passed and it's April again. I remember last year, working at the CRA and listening to Sarah Slean "Night Bugs" and "Day One", Sophie Zelmani's "Time to Kill" and Jann Arden over and over again. The songs wove together and helped move me through the bewildering pain and loss. I listened to k.d.lang's "Hymns of the 49th Parallel", Tom Waits, Indigo Girls and Elaina Martin. I just tried to remember Stephanie singing, Stephanie being herself, playing bongos on the porch, cooking, dressing in smart clothes, driving, telling stories, shooting pool at the Lookout with me and all the memories that made her *her*.
Wherever you are Steph, I hope you're doing cool.
