A Few Short Notes on Grief

It's still there. Every day. I'm holding together just fine, thank you, but I think about him every day.

I mean, it would be hard not to, considering the overwhelming volume of e-mail, Facebook messages, and whatnot I've been coping with. Fortunately it's all slowed to a trickle over the past day or two.

I'm still figuring out how to talk about it. Mostly I don't wanna.

That's not true. I don't want to talk about it with people who didn't know Bill. I want to talk about it with my community but I don't want to have to explain who he was and what he did to outsiders.

I think this is why I am balking about writing up anything for any larger venue. And also at writing at length here.

So, instead, a status report and a couple notes. Status: still here, still grieving, but yes, life goes on and there are books to read and weddings to attend and the kids need breakfast and my heart remains open to everything, good and bad. Food tastes good. Jokes make me laugh.

Bill's memorial will be at the Center for Sex and Culture in SF on September 26. Details to come.

I added a few more links to the linkspam, most notably Liz Highleyman's obituary in the BAR and also Carol Queen's remembrance at Good Vibes.

That's it for now.


I'm sorry. *hugs*
