It's been a topsy-turvy day with this post. That's woman_of_ with me in the icon there; shall have to change my lj one to match. kazzy_cee let me know that she passed away some while back. I think maybe the Goddess decided I was finally in a place where I could hear the news.
Following is pretty much the post I've been trying to make all today.
From facebook earlier...
Today is going to be tough. I was supposed to be travelling by now. Tomorrow; even though I would have been in Newry for Pride will be easier. I will go to the Peace Garden (my capitalisation) to think of who I would have been there for, but also about my niece, Sarah Jane, who is getting married.
There will be others to; though I never knew him; principal amongst them will be David Lavery, who I really only knew as a name amongst those who were part of the SlayerLit group; one of the first I joined when I became a serious part of Buffy fandom. His passing reminds me of other fans I have known over the years, who have died; mostly without my being aware until long after, so I shall think of them as well.
Mostly it will be tough today in a selfish way, as I need to get my self-pity out of the way, so I can be there for all of them tomorrow.
Goddess willing I will.

I saw this and felt tears that I haven't tried harder to find out what's happening with you. I will think of you tomorrow as well.
Goddess be with us all,
