THROW-BACK THURSDAY: AT MAMA'S GRAVE WITH MY TRIBE, NOVEMBER 1985

L-R: Cameron Hubbe, Maggie Jochild, Sarah Hubbe, Holly Wilder, at Rose Hill Cemetery in Denton, Texas

In November 1985 I drove across country from SF to Texas and back with my then-lover, her sister, and my best friend. We visited places where I had lived, my lover's grandparents had lived, a gay male college friend in Phoenix, and eventually my mother's grave. I became swamped by memories and ossified painful emotion, and was horrible to be around by the end of the journey. A long expedition which raked open a lot more than it resolved.
