Just Remembering, That's All...
Back in October, I wrote about my dear, wondrous and joyful friend Philippa Salisbury, who had just passed away. It was called "How to Be Unique." Today would have been her birthday, and so I couldn't let the day pass without mention. If you have joined these pages since it was written, you can find the article here.
I still get contacted by people because of the piece. Just today, in fact, I heard from a woman at Warner Bros. who knew Philippa -- they never met face-to-face, but traded emails for 10 years. Philippa had called the office, they got to talking, and became friends and stayed in touch. That was pure Philippa. If you said "hello" to her -- and there was a good chance you would, because she'd say "hello" to most everyone -- it was likely you'd get into a conversation. And then adore her.
There are some people whose spirits transcend life. Philippa is one of those. She may not be sitting at your elbow, but she's everywhere else. Always.
