Forming an image


I arrived in Toronto a few hours ago, and spent the afternoon with Shaan, Andrew’s partner. He was nice enough to pick me up from the airport and we spent the past few hours getting to know each other a bit and sharing a few stories about Andrew. I am really glad I came. Tonight is a screening of Andrew’s films, some of which I have seen, but many which I have not and am looking forward to. I am also looking forward to meeting some of Andrew’s friends and forming a more complete image of what he meant to other people. This trip is all about collecting those pieces and holding them close for a few moments, to better come to terms with his passing and in some way to honor the positive impact he had on people’s lives. I wish he had known that while he was alive, but sadly I know that he underestimated it.
