I don't know why, but this morning I miss Larry Swedis. So what if he passed away over 6 years ago, he's still fondly remembered. I miss his generosity of time and spirit. I miss talking with him and hearing straightforward honesty. I would have liked to hear his opinion on the current state of unemployment throughout the country and Massachusetts specifically. I miss seeing his creativity spring forth at larp games and mow over things that stood against it - I would have liked to see a collaborative module from him and melamitra as both of them have conceived and implemented the kind written into legend and shared as war stories for years. I wish he had been around for certain other friends he deeply cared about, especially during trials over the past couple of years. Our world remains lessened by his corporeal absence.
