This week marks ten years (ten!) since my friend Anne took her own life.
The dark irony of this week's theme isn't lost on me however although it wasn't in mind as I was cobbling it all together.
You think you know a person and then they're getting dressed up to formally to come to your apartment to tell you it's all over and to retrieve their toothbrush.
You think you know a person when you're closer and even more intimate afterward.
You think you know a person when they can reveal and confide the troubled workings and misfirings of their own brain to you with clarity and humor and candor.
And you know a person when in the end, the final act was, in a way, no surprise at all.
