I’ve been pretty busy lately, and in the last few days lost a loved one to a horrible freak accident. Processing this loss has been complicated by a flood of news coverage about the accident and large number of calls from friends who have heard the news on CNN or read it in the newspapers. In light of this tumultuous time, I am officially taking a “break” from this blog. Tomorrow will be one year from the first entry I made here, and I had originally wanted to try to do some cooking to mark the occasion, but I can’t bring myself to make anything special, so I’ll have to come back to it in a few weeks.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the talents of my late friend Jerry Fuchs. He was an incredible drummer, and an incredible friend. I loved him and told him at every opportunity how special he was to me. I feel lucky to have known him, and lucky that I do not have any regrets about never telling him how much he meant to my life. Also here is a beautiful clip from Lance Bangs’ Arthurfest feature.
