    With Love
    I retunred to Brooklyn tonight to some unexpected news. One of my good friends from college, we'll call him the Red Head, returned a call I had made to him back on Tuesday night.

    While in Ireland for the holiday, he was met with the kind of news you can never be prepared for. His mother, who had fought a long battle with cancer, died on Thanksgiving Day. He was flying from his home in Los Angeles tonight to be with his family in Minessotta.

    So many thoughts are running through my head. I want to be there for him. I am wracked with guilt that I can't just walk up to him, give him a hug, be there for him. I literally can not imagine what he's going through right there right now. His mother was a wonderful woman who I wish I had known better. i met her only once or twice, the last time being a 4 day trip to the family's cabin on the St. Croix river. She was the matriarch of a large family, who tonight must mourn in ways I can't fathom.

    I want to be there for The Red Head. I want to let him know I love him. I want to let him know I would do ANYTHING to help him through this. Even when I know he knows all that.

    And in light of all this, I want to let my mother know I love her. More than anything. I called her twice tonight to tell her that. I just wanted to say it again.
