Dream of:01 July 2012 "Death Of A Friend"
never forget that death is waiting
As my Salvadoran-American ex-wife Carolina and I walked through a room, I noticed two fellows leaning against a wall and I recognized their clear faces as belonging to classmates from my teen-age years, Sam McGraw and Wally Morgan. They looked exactly as they had when we had attended high school together. I walked up to them and I asked them if they knew that Steve Buckner (1952-2012, a close friend when we had been teenagers) had died.
I seemed to sense that Wally and Sam were curious about Carolina and I wondered if they were musing on the difference in age between Carolina and me. I knew that I was almost 20 years older than Carolina, a fact which probably gave them food for thought.
We talked a bit more.
