Tomorrow I will go to Berkeley for a remembrance and celebration for our beautiful beloved Elena, who was struck and killed by a truck while bicycling to work in Oakland one year ago August 9th. She would have been 56 on August 24, 2008. So young. So many years for those of us still here to live without her. She was Sudi’s godmother. A truly evolved spirit. Perhaps there was simply no more work for her to do on this plane and so she took wing. Those of us left behind will continue to sorely miss her. Tomorrow many of her friends and family will meet at Aquatic Park in Berkeley to celebrate her vibrant spirit and experience the web of love she wove with others dear to her or who were touched by her life. Death builds a difficult divide. Hard to bridge.
