The private, the public.

I'm not exactly sure why, but this morning I felt compelled to check Mark's memorial web site to see if anything of note had come up lately. Thankfully, his Mom's E-mail address has been posted, so I can finally drop her a line - frustratingly, every time I was able to speak with her, we were almost immediately interrupted by press asking for interviews, or by people she never knew wanting to tell her about their own personal feelings.

Anyhow, what I'm really writing about is simple: going through a Google! search of related news stories, of which there are apparently hundreds, I was surprised to find a story in a Traverse City (where is that anyhow?) gay newspaper talking about the Vancouver restaurant incident. Now, I have a postcard from Mark that he sent from that trip talking about that infamous incident, so it's kind of strange to see something that's always been fairly personal (I never told anyone about that incident, although I'm sure Mark got some great laughs with the story) show up in some random newspaper. I'm not exactly sure how it makes me feel to see it out there on the 'Net, but it is making me feel something. How strange to see something from your shared past made public.
