Leigh Ann is gone.

Most of you on my friends list know this already, so I'm going to talk now. (I dropped the name last night in hopes of not beating someone more eloquent and in touch to the punch). If you haven't seen what a dozen others have already reported on, look a my Friends page for news of motogrrl's death.

Leigh Ann is one of the bravest, strongest, most fearless people I've ever met. I wasn't her closest friend by a long shot, and I doubt she knew how much I admired her. But she had the ability to just Become. Become your friend, your lover, your closest ally. Fully and completely in a moment.

I'm not making anything up when I say that several of my favorite songs in this world she wrote, sang, performed or otherwise brought to me. The following is more apt to her than she may have known:

I hear where a mighty hero shouts in triumph to the skies,
fearless and invincible, whom all creation magnifies.
Heaven trembles at that laughter, hosts of angels all bow down;
trust in it, exult in it, to you belongs the crown.

Go on, go on in strength, and never turn aside --
Divinity, your destiny that cannot be denied.

- The Crown from Nuit's Mother Night LP
