Friday night.

Tonight I finished work at 8 pm. I knew that my sister was going to be out. My plan was to go home, check my email, then go out and find sushi and bring it back home. I walked along Eglington until I found an open, friendly little sushi restaurant. I believe the name of the place is Tokyo Sushi. The decor was warm and inviting so instead of ordering take out I decided to stay. I was really enjoying the food. I was thinking how much Graham would have enjoyed it too. Then a song starting playing that I associate with him because we played the CD The Carpenters, Singles 1969-1981, many times when he was hospitalized.
It was the Carpenters "Only Yesterday" playing
'Only yesterday when I was sad, and I was lonely.
You showed me the way to leave the past,
and all it's tears behind me.
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today.
Since I threw my sadness away,
Only yesterday.'

I think I have left the tears behind me.

Karen had such a beautiful melancholic charm when she sang. When I think of an Angel singing I always imagine Karen's voice.

I agree Ben. I think she joined the angels way too young.

I think you may also have found a regular place to both enjoy sushi and relive memories.
