From our dear friend, Adam Bridge, who was a great help to Steve after he was moved to Skilled Nursing at Christmastime. This was originally posted on Adam's Instagram account and when it came up on my feed, I was immediately reduced to tears. Deeply meaningful and moving.
"Remembering Steve Barbour. He loved Paris. This is my
last image of Steve along with a photo of Paris by Lluis Ripoll used by
permission. I like to think he is always, now, in Paris. City of Light.
Hail and farewell, my friend." Adam Bridge

Magic and the Passing of Time

Wow! So beautifully photoshopped, so evocative. I love this.ReplyDelete
I do, too, Robin. It just says it all for me.Delete
¡Maravillosa! What an extraordinarily loving visual tribute to Steve.ReplyDelete
Isn't it just? It captures so much so very well. I began to think of taking his ashes to the river Seine. Who knows?Delete
To answer your question. I've lived at the same address for 35 years. I haven't done the math for awhile. It's startling! On the other hand, Bellingham has changed so much since October 1984 and I am not the same person I was in 1984, so it feels as if I have been many people in many places. If someone had told me 35 years ago that I would still be living in the same place, I would not have believed them. In the first 7 years of my life we lived in five different places in California. After I left home, I lived in four more places in California and then briefly near Boston. I've been in Bellingham since 1974, living at four different addresses. I hope to live at this address for the rest of my life. We'll see (-:ReplyDelete
Thats just amazing to me, being the nomad that I have been, moving in and out of rentals at breakneck speeds. I bought my condo where I am now, and I hope to never leave. The longest I've lived in an abode is 5.5 years. I like the idea of being settled into one place.Delete
Lovely tribute. I know you will cherish it and the memories it summons.ReplyDelete
I do. And I will.Delete
