I Am Not At SXSW

By March 11, 2013Blog


I had lavish plans to go to Austin this year, with three-foot balloons, and rolled up love letters and a toy piano in tow.

And then my dad got sick, and sicker, and died, and the world turned inside out.

Plans break down, when real life happens.

Nikki Jeske, a lovely woman on Twitter asked, “Are you coming to SXSW?” And I told her no, and why.

She’d read all 101 love letters from act one of LAMP (here), and said delightful things about them.

And then, today, this:

A wall at SXSW

She’d drawn it on a wall in Austin.

It made me cry.
