    Hi Karl.
    You remind me that it’s important to sort things out with friends and family, as you never know what will happen, and what’s around the corner.
    You did a lot with the time you had.
    your wide, messy, legacy still stands, and the people that love you are still making art and music and laughing.

    To Piri:
    The folk who seem happy
    And those who seem bright
    With smiles on their faces
    And feet that are light
    Art not always those
    That have lived in the sun
    But those who faced darkness
    Fought it and won
    Miss you around – miss your light feet and smile.
