Neil Gaiman just returned from the U.K.
He went (I learned only from twitter: here is he is there, for those of you who are interested) for his father's funeral.
It is a sweet and somber moment on his blog. Worth checking in.
Neil is quite a guy (this is not news). I'd reprint some of what he says in his last few posts, but you really have to look at each of them. They are not long. But they hold the essence of that love that you feel for your family, and for your friends, and for the fleet nature of time.
Above: Neil, his father, and grandfather. Here: Neil's blog.
