Joel

My brother
my fellow traveller 
the calendar of my nativity
my constant
my one
my darling Joel
has died.

I don't yet know why or how.
But I know he's gone.



I'll be gone from the blog for a while.
Until then, hold your dear ones close to your heart.

Say "I love you" to the ones you love, 
just as my brother did every day of his life.

I'm so sorry, Sarah. It's the first time I write on your blog, though I read every single post.
So I'm sending you a lot of good energy from Mexico City.
So sorry for your loss.
