There's too much violence in the world.

A friend of mine just lost the love of her life.

I don't know what else to say. I can't stop crying.

To hear the song I really want to post (but can't because it hasn't been released yet - my CD will be arriving sometime this month) go here and listen to "No More Missing Daughters." When I hear it, I think about little Tori Stafford, my friend, and other women I know who have been lost to violence, whose lives have been shattered. Too many.

Here's another song that does it to me every time.

I know my long-time followers have seen this before, but I love her so...can't wait to see her at Hillside in July.

Life is too short. I need to grab everything while I can.

There's a candle on my altar for my friend, and her lost love. May she be at peace.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's partner. You're right, life is too short and I'm going to try very hard to remember not to take the wonderful people in my life for granted again or the time I have left on this earth. My deepest sympathies to your friend.

Thank you.

It's amazing how someone I've never met could affect me so profoundly. I only knew of her though my friend, but she lives for me. Her life ended too soon.
