Clouds sometimes obscure the sun.
As we pause our game drive to consult the map, I glance up and notice the sky. My thoughts flicker to the most generous man I’ve known, bar none. For a moment I smell roses, but they’re nowhere around. It’s the sweetness of his memory, which chases the evening chill from my cheeks. Despite dreadful injury at the hand of a nameless criminal, his coma was characterized by complete peace. The gabbering of guinea fowl reminds me where I am. Although I taste tears, they do not fall. Instead, I smile. Charlie Baty, beloved friend, your Sunbeam Soul lights our way forever.
