Octavia Butler: Escape Velocity

I don't usually read the front page of the newspaper and read about the unexpected death of someone I know. Today I did. Octavia Butler was an amazing woman in so many ways, and I feel privileged to have known her in some small degree beyond her deserved fame and popularity. She was shy and private, yet confident. Gentle like a mountain. It isn't right that she is gone.

Gone much too young. How lucky you are to have known her.
