Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #420 - Gene Wilder, RIP
Hi Mom, Someone else has died, and it's a sad loss.
It's funny (NOT funny ha ha) as I had just spotted a podcast with Umberto Eco that I wanted to share yesterday before I heard that Gene Wilder had died. I was thinking about all the people who had died this year, important people, like Eco, like Bowie, and Prince, and people important to me but less well known to the culture at large like Darwyn Cooke and Tony Philips and then Gene Wilder dies to you.
And you Mom. Because even though it's been over a year since your death, even though I can't think any more that a year ago on this day, you did X or Y, every time a significant person dies, I think of you. (And really, all people are significant but you know what I mean...)
I miss you, Mom.
Here's the litany of death just this year.
Hey Mom, #311 - Darwyn Cooke
Hey Mom #248 - People Keep Dying
Hey Mom #187 - Bowie Dies
Hey Mom #289 - Prince RIP

Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
