Getting Back To Life: When Every "Goodbye" Is "Hello"

Yeah, I'm back. 


The last three months have been comprised of a series of battles, some won, some lost, some still being fought. The  horrendous housing situation has quieted, leaving me free to write again, but forcing me to schedule my life accordingly. Time schedules and body schedules are tough to maintain when you're an older blogger like me. 

My last endeavor was putting a video together as a tribute to my ex-partner Mike Ward. I was his caregiver for a number of years and although he passed away from liver cancer last July, we hadn't been able to create a memorial until last Wednesday. 

And it was awesome!

Mostly Mike's friends from the SF cabaret scene. People who knew him for a relatively brief period of his life. So the video was a revelation in many ways. The main theme was Mike's legacy: that - like a song from The Little Princess - Every Goodbye Is Hello.

Hope you all enjoy it.
