Sunday Letter #34

Ian,

I stopped writing these a long time ago, because it felt like I was holding on to something I shouldn’t. But today I want to write to you.

It’s been a very eventful week for me, and I know if you were here, you’d celebrate with me. You’d be proud.

We hired our friend, the reverendĀ at work – he’s going to be working for me – I know you’d be thrilled about that. What that also means is that my promotion went through. It’s all approved, and will take effect in a couple weeks. If you were still around, I’d be joining your rank, since you were next in line before you left. We’d certainly have a very drunk, very entertaining party with the three of us at this level. As it is, we’re waiting for the guy who (of course, very capably) took your place to get there… Then we will.

Another, even more exciting thing, though? I finally joined a band! They’re really good, and I know you’d love their music. I think you’d also like them. They’re pretty cool people. I’m joining them at their next performance, on the 23rd, so I’ve been listening to almost nothing else, so I can learn where I need to do harmonies.

The even better thing about it is that they seem almost as excited as I am.

I wouldn’t be here without you. Not remotely. I wouldn’t be here without your death either… So, though I would give it up in a heartbeat to have you back, I’m a little…. Grateful? Something like that.

I miss you. I love you. And I know that you’re out there somewhere doing your little shimmy and grinning from ear to ear.

-Iris
