Anniversary coming up  
Last year, on April 1st, I lost a dear friend I knew only through the internet. Some people on my f-list knew her too. I just thought I would post a reminder so those of us who want to mark this anniversary in some way have time to prepare.

Of course I'm talking about~Chavi~.

ETA to second Matrinka's idea to wear a special/funny hat on that day in honor of Chavi's post-chemo hats and the spirit behind them.

I've been thinking on what to do to mark the occasion. I think, in honor of her marvelous sense of humor and style, that from this year forth April 1st will be Chavi Hat Day. I will put on my most wonderfully outrageous hat and wear it all day long.

Oooh, what a good idea! I second that! We should spread the word!

Chanvi's picture in its "memory frame" is right be hind me on the wall of the relocated office. It seems right that she is looking over my shoulder. She is there for herself, but ever reminds me of so many other young lives snuffed out so much too soon.

I came across her picture back when I was packing to move, I'll have to find it again. I still have the peacock feathers I bought for my special altar for her crossing. I like Matrinka's idea about wearing a special hat all day because I remember the hats Chavi wore after her chemo.

Of course I can't help but wonder why someone great like Chavi dies so young but people like Cheney live to a ripe age. I can ponder things like free will and a non-interfering deity all I like and it still sucks.

Yes, thinking of Chavi does make me wonder why people like Cheney live so long---and today especially, it makes him take on Nosferatu-like qualities in my mind (more on that in a post later). My mind, too, can chase its tail all day. I find myself thinking of Chavi every time I wear a hat.
