I can't do it.

September 17th, 2005 (08:13 am)

I just cannot go.

My alarm went off moments ago,
I could not sleep last night--drifted off after 6 AM.

I'm a mess.
Shaky.
Still not well.

But more than anything,
I simply do not feel strong enough
to make it through that kind of....
Journey.

To sit in the car all the way to Llano
in a car with his family...
To go through the ritual of it all.

To bury another
of my young Friends.

I just cannot go.

I have called Kevin, left a message--
so they would not wait for me.
I am ashamed of myself.

But I just cannot do this.
I can't do it.

It's okay, hon. You don't have to go and you don't need to feel bad or guilty about it. Rest, remember happier times, get healthy and continue to celebrate life. That's the best way to honor a deceased friend.

Saying goodbye is a personal thing.

Don't yell yourself - everyone involved knows who you are, what you meant to him and how you feel.

You're a rock. Sometimes rocks have to stay where they are in order to provide a foundation and support.

(yeah, I'm writing for a tabloid, I have to get my platitudes out somewhere else)

Don't be ashamed sweet one.

You need to be at home resting. Everybody honors the deceased in their own way. You've been very sick and I think that the physical and emotional stress of travelling today would have thrown you into pneumonia. I'm glad to know that you are home, safe and getting well.
