My Final Confession

Confession: I haven’t watched the final Letterman episode. I will just…when I am ready. Had the same issue with R.E.M.’s final album…took months to finally get into it.

Outside of pop culture in life…with relationships, death, hardships I have a German-efficient grief: I absorb the hit, grasp it as best as I can and keep trying to surge forward.

With pop culture passings, retirements…moving ons etc. it feels more tangible, like the faint smell of take out in the car a week later: there’s a distinct history there based on hunger and hopefully however briefly of being satisfied.

For now the final episode just sits there waiting for me. I will…just…gimme some time.
