Ides of March

You know that certain kind of spam you get when a friend gets hacked? It appears to be from them, it’s to you and a few other people you don’t know, it includes a link full of consonants that screams “don’t click me” (if you have good spam ESP) and it’s invariably from someone using either AOL or Yahoo.

I got one of those this morning. I opened up the email on my phone and did a double take. Email from a man who’s been dead a year. Subject: Hot Copy. But the truly eerie thing about it? One of the other “recipients” was my mother, who’s been dead for four years.

Are Eddie and Moky somewhere together, writing hot copy about Joyce and Eliot? I like to think so, though I know better.

I frequently get such e-mails...and just as eerie to me, I get notices on Facebook from friends who have been dead for years. In the Blue Nowhere, we are eternal...

Shade and Sweetwater,

They might be. Together. Posting hot copy.

Such thoughts are the only silver lining to such annoying nonsense.

I needed some goosebumps this early in the morning. Memo to self: don't read your blog in the evening.

It is like a message. I'm sure they are together enjoying Joyce.
