Haven’t posted in a few days… not sure how to keep the blog going. I have Danielle thoughts all day every day and want to tell story after story. I am compelled to keep people interested in her life - she meant so much to so many.
I have many people writing me that they don’t have the words… that they do not exist. I think they do exist. They are hard and confusing… like algebra.
Gus and I could not have made it this far without words, friends and safety.
Our relationship was 50% humor and 50% unexplained phenomenon.
All I can think to do is recall our lives together as it comes.
At the moment I cannot stop thinking about 1991 around 12:30AM down at the Memphis Queen Line River Boats. She showed up around that time to help sell Photos and load up the gear.
We had sold photos to people leaving a late night cruise on the Mississippi river. There were display boards and extension cords to put away. I did the heavy work and Danielle would roll up the power cords.
I was on the dock when she yelled out “ SOME IDIOT PARKED ON THE EXTENSION CORD”… I looked over at her just as she said “NEVERMIND!!!”
It was she that had parked on the cord.
That moment stayed with us for 19 years.
