When you see someone once a week on average, sometimes more, for fifteen years (give or take), it’s very disquieting to realize, one day, that somehow he’s gone and you’ll never see him again. Even if you’re not fast friends, it still knocks you backwards.

When that person is a performer, a songwriter who plainly and directly shared himself through his music in a most authentic voice, it hurts to know that there will be no more words and music from him. But it’s a comfort to have artifacts, and memories, and the company of others who also experienced the artistry, the gifts, of such a person.

Thanks, Sean.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
