A friend whose gone

Post by MagicMike626 » Sun Oct 17, 2021 9:49 pm

I live in an area that is not necessarily close to a major city. When I first moved in a big man named Jake said hello in a Grateful Dead shirt. Throughout my years living here he was there when my family didn’t give a fuck. We spent some time traveling to the store to smoke Malboro’s and watching westerns. In one summer there was great marijuana, so we got high as hell. He occasionally had advice and was tough as nails, but is now gone because of cancer, so I said a prayer tonight.

I hope his family is well and there is good sunshine.

Jake helped when my parents were not there. I didn’t have a car, he took me to Cohasett and I drank a beer in the passenger seat. The landscape was rugged, and the ocean air drifted in to my skin and helped me feel aware. Aware of myself and my breath, aware of the environment and the landscape.

Every morning we would get coffee, I hope he has a spectacular afterlife.
