Harry Fassl, RIP

I just got word that my old friend from Chicago, Harry Fassl, died on Sunday morning. Harry was an artist-photographer, and one of the most interesting and intelligent people you could ever hope to meet. Years ago, when playing around with a new recording capability on his computer, Harry sent me a tiny .wav file. Ever since then, literally, it's Harry's voice that says "Hello, Von!" every time I get a new email.

Gosh, I'm just so sad. Sleep well, Harry. We'll miss you terribly.

I still miss him, Von. Jeff told me it was like he left us in the middle of a sentence. Saying that makes me wish Jeff wrote more stories. Why aren't you on Twitter?

No Twitter. There are already more Internet spaces to upkeep than I can manage. Part of me hates them all because they all suck away writing time. I maintain most of them only because it seems necessary.
