You left a mark on me

“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star.  Everyone stops, points up, and gasps ‘Oh look at that!’  Then– whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again…and they won’t be able to forget me– ever.” ~ Jim Morrison

Raven hair, red lips, perfection. My gorgeous friend.

Raven hair, red lips, perfection. My gorgeous friend.

Mercifully I go into a state of shock when I lose people I love.  I cannot even begin to write the eloquent tribute Brandi Crook deserves– but I will– and I hope it will capture the essence of her unforgettable spirit.  My sapio companion.  The woman who always had a riveting read and a licentious lesson.  The woman who introduced me to all things MOOSE and Russell Brand.  The woman who refused to stand for injustice and never hesitated to speak her mind. branditextI’ve made the heart wrenching decision not to go to San Luis Obispo in the near future. As much as I want to be there I must look out for myself– and I know my dear friend would understand.  Brandi, I love you.  Instead of heading west at this time I plan on getting a tattoo worthy of this incredible woman, making donations to SLO Food Bank & Women’s Shelter of SLO, and perhaps a few other tricks up my sleeve.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
