Icon is a shot Ki took of Becky, during a family trip to Turkey. Becky is playing in the waves at the eastern end of the Mediterranean.

On this last afternoon she was here, nine years ago, I had just flown back to Boston all through the night and earlyMorning sunrise, and had cancelled a flight to New York to see another friend, a performer opening her own multilingual show on that Saturday night. Cancelled b/c I was utterly exhausted and needed sleeeeeeeep.

Wanna crosspost to her memorial journal:

The words are from Karen Carpenter's first megaHit in 1970. She was 19. Ki was seventeen days short of that.

Karen passed away in 1983 of a heart attack from complications of anorexia. She was 32.

A short quote from Tom Petty, one of my faves:

I'm Learnin' To Fly
But I ain't got wings:
Comin' down
Is the hardest thing...


O no, it's not hard. Just entirely avoid coming down at all.
