Maraschino Cherries

"Let’s go to lunch", I said, so we went to Ruby’s on the pier without the kids, without her husband. The salty wind blew our hair as we walked down the pier over the waves, and I think I held her hand for a moment, if I remember correctly. We had maraschino cherries in our diet cokes. We had to check (we always did) to see if we each had the same number of cherries. It was our thing. I don’t know why. We pretended it mattered if one of us had more, but truth be told, I would have given her all of mine, if I knew she really wanted them. I loved her so. We were so happy that day. Just being together, and being sisters, and knowing we’d always be close. Except now we aren’t. Who knew? Somehow, maraschino cherries just don’t taste the same anymore.

I miss

I miss my sister so much. I wish I could just erase the things she did and the cancer in her soul that made her do them and think them to be right, and just enjoy the good that I hope is still somewhere inside her.

Free surgery? Free surgery?

Rest in piece, Robin Williams. Damn fine actor. He was a huge supporter of the USO and volunteered every chance he got. He even insisted to being sent to the front to entertain.

“Close your eyes.
From Hook to Jumanji to Dead Poet’s Society
With wonder and fantasy and passion
Your joy became watercolor poetry that filled
in the sun and made people everywhere
believe in themselves and believe in life.
We’ve seen you weep and stand on a desk to view the world differently.
We’ve seen you fight for what you wanted and desired.
Maybe these were just characters, but you brought them to life.
I don’t know your middle name or your wife’s name or how you felt the first moment you realized you were famous or the first time you felt alive,
but I know you were sixty-three when you felt the desks collapse and
the walls close in and suddenly we remembered you were fighting a battle, too.
Suddenly we feel an absence we hadn’t felt before.
Suddenly we feel a sadness we do not know how to describe.
We’re all fighting battles and we realize that with your passing
and we’re sorry you had to leave.
You made us laugh and you made us weep and you made
us stand in our movie theatre seats and raise our fists to a life worth living.
OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN, we will remember you.”
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams. You brought joy to so many. You were well loved. Rest in Peace, Robin Williams. You brought joy to so many. You were well loved. Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.
