Ruth

I’m heading back down to Mississippi today for Gram’s funeral.  I’m all out of grandparents now.

She helped put me through school financially.  She always supported my work and backed me up regardless of what I was trying to do.  She had that way of encouraging people to do better without disparaging what they were doing already.  And she taught me to make sausage balls, which is maybe the only life skill I’ll ever keep.

I got to see her before Christmas; we had some pizza and ice cream sandwiches, and she was delighted.  I’m lucky to have had her for so long, and heartbroken to have to say goodbye now.

I'm a painter, a drummer, a student, and currently unemployed. I also appreciate cats and a bit of light debauchery, but not at the same time or for the same reasons.
