"X has died," says Ailz

X has the same name as a British celebrity and at first I thought it was the famous one who had died.

"No," said Ailz, "Not that X, our X."

He was one of the people we initiated into Wicca. We've all moved on since those days- and we'd only been in touch with him through his ex-wife. She went up and he went down. The booze killed him.

Busy place, this planet. People coming and going all the time. Always a bit of a jolt, though, when someone you know gets up, walks out the door...

Raise a glass to him.

No, in the circumstances, maybe not...

O, what the hell!

Raise a glass.

It works for us too. We love all a cappella.

I think anyone who has lived the best life they knew how to live, booze included, should have a glass raised in their memory.

Planet Earth is a tough gig; anyone who spends time down here has earned respect.

They do say that people are free of their burdens in the next life, so perhaps raising a glass this time would be entirely appropriate ...

Certainly this world is one of the tougher ones. Having a physical body is both a wonderful opportunity and a terrible drag.

dysfunctional biology
can be a hard thing
to live with.

May his rebirth lead him past it.

its good his ex is in contact with you.
she needs a tie to the living.

do lift your glass to the core
that part you met didn't leave
just get submerged.

life is so ephemeral .

Ailz and I shared a bottle of beer- and toasted him....

He'll be fine.

I have one initiate reborn also
its an odd thing saying good bye
her nemsis was brain cancer.
it was misdiagnosed as early menopause.

May they shine forward
and grow into happiness.
