Terry Pratchett died March 12th. I cried a bit, acknowledged how silly it was to cry about a man I had never met, indulged in the swapping of favorite bits and meaningful quotes, and saw my niece introduced to the Discworld.

The 25th anniversary of Jim Henson's death was May 16th. I bawled shamelessly, teared up at the first notes of "It's Not Easy Being Green" or "Rainbow Connection" (which were, of course, all over the place), watched the memorial service, and raised a glass to the PBS triumvirate of Jim Henson, Bob Ross and Fred Rogers.

Somewhere in between, my own father died, and all I felt was relief.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
