So I was looking through my comics... like you do... and I found an old card. It's apparently a birthday card... for me... that was in amongst them.

The signature is hard to discern and there's no date on it.

At first I thought it was from Mlle_Aubergine, then I thought maybe my old friend Maureen... but it doesn't look like Mlle's hadnwriting and I can't remember Maureen's handwriting nor her signature. Something about it made me think of my old friend Jon.

I'm a little speechless as I think of Jon from time to time and he'll creep into my dreams and always I want to know that he's ok. I loved him dearly, adored his art and writing... he was always there with the right thing to say, even if it was the totally wrong thing to say.

I sent a message to the only address I ever had for him, and as it's a hotmail address, I don't know that he would still own it.

I miss you, Jon. If you're out there... if you read this... email me.

*** Update: after sleeping on it and getting the bottle of wine out of my system, I'm pretty sure it's Maureen's. - 4th of February
