I have one more request to fulfill for Bas and I don’t want to do it, but I’m going to. He wanted me to take down his blog one month after he passed. I’m all ready late, but it’s time. I’ve emailed Lisa about this and asked her about leaving it up longer, but she said Bas knew what he wanted and we should stick to his wished. She’s right.
Even at this I can’t bring myself to erase all he has written. So Wednesday evening, I’m going to take the blog private and the only one invited will be Lisa. That way she will have access to what's there. I’m not comfortable taking the blog down, I’m not comfortable taking it private and I’m not comfortable leaving it up. Can you tell I’m not comfortable? Eventually, with Lisa’s permission, I guess I’ll have to do exactly as he said and it will be gone. I just want to make sure Lisa will have access as long as she wants it.
I also extended an invitation to Lisa to come visit our blogs, and I told her that we would love it if she left a comment from time to time. I don’t want to push her, but Bas had such good, caring friends here and I know we all feel that that friendship certain included Lisa. Blogland can be very warm and supportive and I want her to know she would be as welcomed as the flowers in spring.
Bas has been on my mind a lot lately. As I find myself not completely happy with TTWD at the moment, I can almost hear Bas telling me off in his kind, but firm way. Bas seemed to understand Nick and his position completely and he was very good at helping me see Nick’s side of things. I really do miss my friend.
