Saw Damien on the bus – he didn’t recognize me.. last time he saw me, I had a full bear, long hair down, and was dancing with Willow.
I think the last time I spoke to him was Christmas at the ‘Borgs, about a decade ago.
Yup, I’ve got a picture, though Damien isn’t in it.
Ah, here’s one with him in it from about the same time – He’s on the left, in the tie dye, hands on his knees. I’m practically invisible on the right, a hovering set of cheekbones and a forehead. A lot fo people in that picture that I haven’t seen in a while. Notably Kenny the Klown (he’s in NC right now), The Three Brians, Eryn, Nate/Nug, Leisa, and the rest. I miss the drum circle / guitars on the beach days, when I remember to remember them. Lots of good cheer, good vibes, and positive thoughts. Very little negativity then… I think I learned a lot from those guys.
Anyhow… Damien.. he’s not doing so well. He was drinking vodka from a bottle in the back of the bus, with some older woman (maybe 25 years his senior… and not his mom Deirdre, either.) and taking some transparent caps… could’ve been acid, but I’m not sure. He was looking quite worn… a few days growth of beard, cuts and sores on his face and arms. I didn’t know who he was at first, until I heard him talking in the nasal slur to his seat mate.
