The social network

Although I had little hair at my high school reunion, Dharma drew even more attention.

As I peruse the Facebook comments of those who knew and loved her, I rejoice in having had Lori in my life, and grieve over the loss, alongside so many who were touched by Rubinstein’s incredible aura and joi de vivre. While the Internet keeps us connected in many wonderful ways, being able to reach out and touch our loved ones will never be replaced. My memories of proms and homeroom firmly rooted in the past, I bravely trudge on, suddenly reminded of how tenuous life in the present can be, and why being a part of the social network is fraught with the unpredictable as well. Sometimes I miss the old days, most often I cherish the present, and today I join many, and say goodbye to an amazing woman, who was here just a moment ago.
