Letter from Deborah
for the Wellington concert, 26 October 2002
I am so glad that I truly believe spirit is
indestructible because I feel you close by.
I am so glad to have crossed paths with you on the way to nowhere.
I celebrate your passion for language, your willingness to laugh and your
I remain inspired by your unerring sense of present time on stage, your innate
dignity and willingness to be the fool.
I like the way you ate your food and kept your papers in a briefcase.
Your precision and possession is a comfort to me.
I am proud of our friendship.
I only regret that I never said thank you and, I love you.
I love you.
Your friend Deborah
