She’s not around any more

After three years of living in Israel, I came back to the USA last summer (’12) to work at Genesis at Brandeis University, and one of my best friends came to visit me on one of my days off. I’d last seen her in the summer of ’09 at her wedding.

YShe’s not around any more, and I miss her. And working at Genesis again this summer (’13) reminded me of her visit to me last year, particularly on my days off campus with friends and family.

Whenever I put my fingers to the keyboard I think of her, and all my other thoughts become banal. This, despite not having anything new to say about her. I can only say that I truly wish more people could have known her.
