R.I.P.

Peace out, Alice Coltrane.

Matt remembers we had many conversations before this point, but, six or seven years ago, the first bout of concentrated flirting between us that I remember, after I realized that I was going to the record store just to see him was while he was explaining to me why I would love Alice Coltrane and why Reflections was worth the $30. It was. As were the Alice Coltrane records that were marked at $6. I used to stare at her picture on the cover of Eternity and think that was what I wanted to be when I grew up; peace-lady thinking deep in the tall yellow grass--singular, unnameable and brave.
