Alicia Snavely

We've lost Alicia Snavely.

She passed away yesterday. I don't know much more than that. A friend broke the news to me just over six hours ago. Since then I've mainly thought, rested, and slept. Had an unsettled dream, I'm not surprised to say.

I've known Alicia for about 15 years, thanks to LiveJournal and her account mac_arthur_park; later we migrated to being Facebook friends as well. This feels like a body blow. God, it's such a fucking cliché to say someone was full of life, but she was: caring, brash, funny, good with people, enthused, and with absolutely zero tolerance for bullshit. If she was mad at bullshit, she had damn good reason to be.

This is bullshit and she'd be damn mad at that.

I miss you, Alicia Snavely. I'm lucky I knew you. I'll try to hang on to that.
