I have so dearly loved reading this old Usenet thread this week.

Wednesday is the anniversary of her death.

I cannot fathom the notion that I have spent a year without talking to Maddy. Just can't wrap my mind around it. Can't be true. I still expect to see her mailbox turn bold with an emailed dope slap about some stupid comment I've made somewhere.

Ah this too-short life. Ah, my friends. I get so busy, so sidetracked, and I forget to tell you how much I love you.

I love you, all of you who ride with me on this little spinning speck, all of you who have extended a hand to me. I love you.

Goddamn it, Madeleine. You are so missed.

Nice to find another lover of desert environments; I noticed your writing through Live Journal.

Thanks for the link, Chris -- I enjoyed reading it again, too.

Indeed...It comes and goes, but I still sometimes think of things that Madeleine would appreciate more than anybody else. It sucks that I can't share them with her.
