New Grief: another loss among my friends

Dana Thompson is gone.

She and I met through Trek in the Park, which she starred in as Uhura from the beginning in 2009. I and mutual friends of hers have been learning the news throughout today. I don't yet know anything beyond that she has died, apparently yesterday.

Dana performed not just as an actor but as a backup singer, a member of the local rock band Dartgun and the Vignettes. Her deep loves included her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri and David Bowie; I've been thinking of "Life on Mars?" because of her.

We grieve because we care; but, grief does not care about us.

Damnit. I miss you, Dana, and I'll be thinking about you.
