Of Love and Dreams
The April 12th celebration, this year, is different. I started these pages a few years ago because I wanted to celebrate some of the show’s values. Love, Hope, Courage… this year it would be Dreams. And, as usual, I started to plot and gather ideas about how to feature "Of Love and Dreams". This year, of all years, I decided to ask Chan. We talked. She was going to make a drawing, she was going to ask something very special to a friend of long ago… she was going… The last post we exchanged about this was the very day of her illness. For a while, I have been waiting for her to heal and get back to continue our project. In a way, I still am.
The April 12th celebration, this year, is a broken one. Suspended. Incomplete. But it’s dedicated to her, as it is, broken, suspended, incomplete. Like the fandom, now, without Chan.
