I never met David, but I'm reading "Half Empty" in his honour. So proud he's Canadian. A huge loss for our country.

I read Don't Get Too Comfortable several years ago. I never knew David, but when I heard he had died, I went on amazon and bought his 2 other books. He wrote that when his therapist died, he grieved for someone who about whom he knew very little. I am a therapist, and I am luckier. I know something of David through his writings. Here I am online again reading about him and seeing him in what are now, timeless, videos. It would be presumptions to say that I "know" David now, but his essays have given me deeper knowledge of myself. I cannot imagine how much those of you who actually knew him in person loved him. Hey......

He wrote, he spoke, he shared his soul.
His death, our loss, we dare console?
His ryhme, his words, his voice and wit. How does one even dare to submit homage, a eulogy, a story, a time when listening in and hearing his rhmye was remarkable, breathtaking, laugh-out-loud fun? Thank you, David, for all that you've done.

Dear people who also loved David's work, it is not right that he is no more. Thankful though for what he told me via his work. Another David, The Netherlands.
