This evening, I'm going to see Zappa Plays Zappa at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. I'm so excited!
Well, actually, I feel happy and sad, with an order of guilt on the side. I wish so much for Rob to be here today and to be able to come with me! He had wanted to go see Zappa Plays Zappa for years. Every time they were in the GTA, Rob wanted to go and see them play, but I, who handled the finances, never thought we could afford it. "Next year," I'd say. "Next year."
Sadly, next year never came for Rob.
I'm sorry, my love ....
And yet, life is what it is. I'm hoping that Rob's spirit will be with me at the concert tonight. I can see him now, trying to act so cool and yet very happy and excited.
I love you, Rob!
