Things Gone and Things Still Here

RIP Lyrical

You never know what someone is eventually going to mean to you, even someone you will never have had the privilege of meeting in person.

A long time LJ friend of mine, new_birth passed away today. I'm just shocked and devastated. She was my age, you know? I always felt like she got me. We let each other in. We talked about our kids. She wasn't shy about advocating for her family or her community. She taught people things. She wrote poetry. She loved Whose Line Is It Anyway and Rent. She was one of the best mothers I've ever had the privilege of talking to.

I'll have to write something more about her later but it might take awhile.
