I went back and forth with myself over whether or not to publicly remark on the anniversary of my friend Edith’s death. To post about it seemed morbid or maybe too self-centered, too much about me and oh my woe and sadness! But not to post about it, or to just post about various other silly, irrelevant crap seemed disrespectful and callous.
So I’ll just keep it simple and, at the suggestion of a mutual friend, raise a virtual toast. Here’s to Edith Speed, a devilish, complicated and unforgettable woman who remains, even after her death, larger than life.
