BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD

One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today, Elissa Hadley lost her fight to cervical cancer and the world of everyone that ever spent time in her presence got smaller and colder. Later today I'll repost all of her music so that everyone who has not heard it finally has a chance and can share it with others. Also, I would like everyone to read this post and link to it, please - for my sweet little E.


Elissa Hadley, 1 April 1970-27 August 2006


I am better
I am braver
Yes
I am bird wings and birthday cake
Flying starlight clean again
I am flying starlight clean
I am
I am twinkly
Like a tree
At Christmas time
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you...

It is also noteworthy that when I told her to get real about death, she agreed that with my own family history of cancer I'd get it too one of these days - but that both of us would end up dying not from cancer, but from mouthing off at the wrong asshole!

She's likely right, you know. Cancer won't kill me, but my stupid loud mouth VERY likely will. ;-)
