Another Candle

Anita Rowland died yesterday.

I didn’t know Anita well; others knew her much better than did I. Our paths crossed a few times back in olden times, when Blogaria was a small neighborhood rather than an exploding metropolis, but not since then. No matter — our lives were knit together not just by any exchanges we may have had, but by our shared friendships with Shelley, Jeneane, and Frank (among others).

We’re lighting a digital candle for you, Anita, and for all who grieve you. Perhaps it will shed some light to others who miss you, to us in memory, to strangers who learn to know you retrospectively through the imprint you made on us. Perhaps to you, in some way we don’t yet understand. We’re lighting a candle, and we’re coming after you.
