alis volat propris
There is no other person in my memory whom I can name as somebody I would have loved to have got to know better….a lot better, than Kishi. The number of times we have got together I can count with my fingers. So how come I feel this bad that she’s leaving the island?
Here’s my shot at describing her. If ever God made cases studies of people, Kishi would be the case study for sweet. The ‘ah-ha” look she gives you is simply adorable!! How she slightly bites the lips, curls the mouth to the right, tilts her head and goes “mmumh!” makes you want to have a shot of rum and sing “Sweet Caroline”!!....um…guess you have to know her to get what I mean.
She’ll talk about from Forrest Gump to the issues in the middle-east all night long. Making gestures with her hands to make you understand but the only shape she ever makes is something like a bamboo shoot, over and over again!! That’s the shape of a tank as well as a chocolate bar!!!
Anyway Kishi, it’s time and this is me missing you….already.
