Right. It’s February. Always a month that gives me jitters. It’s a birthday month, the birthday of my best friend, Wendy, who would be turning, what, 56 now? Fuck. It’s all just flying past, these years, the memories slipping too, those details of trips, or working together, or the places we ate at, or time spent in her apartment talking about nothing and everything. Writing, writing has been helpful in preserving the memories of her, her laughter, the way she held her cigarette, her wide-eyed stare. She chose her end, she did, I’ve made my peace with it, reluctantly. Still, the month of February. It’s a clusterfuck of breakdown, of emptiness, of nostalgia. The silver lining? February is only 28 days long. So there’s that.
