Sometimes I can't find adequate words to describe the staggering sense of loss that I'm feeling. During those times, I do what millions of others do.....I turn to Coldplay to speak for me. My friend Ryan Dyar LOVES Coldplay.

"And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?"

Goodbye, my 16-35II sunstar. You were my rock, my solace, my source of inspiration. My best friend, lover (awkward, but worth it), confidant. I loved how you could sometimes be so subtle, yet I always knew you were there for me. No matter how many times I failed, I knew you would still be there to pick me back up and dust me off..... except when I dropped you in the ocean, and you were mad. I felt so guilty during my candlelight vigils on the FEDEX site, waiting for your release from the Canon hospital. And when you returned, I held you all night and admired the sweet blades of your f22ness. Best.... setting.....ever. Yes, you could get a little soft in the corners on me, but I've always liked things with a little extra padding.

I'm sorry!!!! I'm so sorry!!!!!

R.I.P. Little Buddy. Be good in your new home
