It’s been lonely around this blog lately. I miss you guys.

I just came upon this news, which made me feel old and sad. I remember where I was when I learned he died: in my basement dorm room in Liz Waters Hall. Oh, River. I was never a fan of your extreme veganism,* but I loved you nonetheless.

*I remember an acquaintance making fun of the dreamy actor, declaring, “Don’t eat meat! Do drugs!”

    Oh, River. The space he left can never be filled. He’s still so missed, by you, by me, by many.

    I saw this yesterday and immediately thought of you. I remember sitting in your room one time when I was probably about 9 or 10 and you telling me about how great he was and that he and I shared the same birthday. Every time I would watch Stand by Me with my friends, I would share facts about him that you had taught me and felt pretty cool that no one else knew them. Love you!

    So good to see you, Sara! Though I admit I don’t like to see people I know when I’m in that condition 🙂 You looked great. As always.

    And Mags, I love that story! I’m so glad my obsession with River Phoenix had a tangible benefit! I knew reading all those books and magazines would pay off! Oh, RIP River Bottom/Phoenix.
