A memorial and fundraiser. It happened.

This will be a short, basic entry.

Saturday night, Beulahland hosted the first fundraiser for the new non-profit that is raising money for a scholarship fund. The fund is called the Dana Thompson Memorial Fund of Awesome.

The fundraiser also was the debut of the art show dedicated to Dana and her memory: art's up on the walls and will be for the next month.

One of the pieces is my poem, "After: a poem for Dana." And on Saturday night, I recited it to the people in the bar.

I'm noting this here so at least this is on the blog before I go to sleep tonight; I'd planned to write a blog entry today but wound up napping after work until, um, late.

More, perhaps, soon. But: it happened. And Dana's remembered.
