Today I lost my first close friend to COVID.
This afternoon Claudia was singing a song. A made-up song, but it was the most beautiful thing I had ever heard in my life. And it would come over me in waves; that the song was so beautiful that it was almost a magic spell… and the sadness that I would never hear it again. That wherever it was coming from, there was no way to replicate it or even come close. And that I was really just hearing it disappear.
