SARAH SPECIAL GOODBYE
The most beautiful "thing" that has ever graced this world has left us. Sarah. God, is my life better for ever having held her strange alien paw. Every fairytale of a puppet come to life, every dream a child has ever had of puppets tucking them in, everything adorable about little witches that somebody drew and were di...scovered in a book and found in a grandmom's attic... You couldn't look AT her: she took your gaze softly into her self and held it like a young mother might hold a baby, and your gaze felt good and safe and finally understood at last... I always said that if I ever believed in anything loving and supernatural and assuring and wonderfully spooky: it would be Sarah... what I always really meant was ... that if ever death and everything that I feared ever came embodied to take me: I wanted it so much to be Sarah: Sarah, to me, was the ultimate: everything is alright, everything is going to be okay version of anything otherwordly that I had never been able to imagine : until there she was. She was like a thousand year old child, hundreds of thousands of years old - something from way before birth : more discovered than ever created. What are we going to do with out her. Her smile: look at it in my photos here: is the answer to our grief: as it always was. It said: somehow we will all find our Pams and Jets and Mobys and Faiths. When I was a little boy and TV was just beginning, I hurry downstairs in my pajamas to watch my hero: Bertie The Bunyip : a strange australian puppet: he was my hero as he is to this day: I never saw anything like him till I came upon Sarah. The other night I was listening to the BBC, and this soul rendering music was played: now I know why. I'll try and include the music with these photos and a photo of Bertie The Buyip. It may be as impossible to capture as the essence of Sarah is but there was something about that wee and wondrous creature that made the Stevie Nicks' song about the Wild Wing Dove seem like nothing more than a sigh. Oh, Sarah... I hope you knew... I really really hope you knew.
