Abord the Yorikke!
Aside from Buk he was one of my favorite souls. Oh yes and there was also Jimmy Hendrix . And there was Lovat Yuen my then partner (writer in the dark who introduced me to Bukowski) and his dear brother Thomas Wong (artist) also gone at 42. I hope that you don't mind this nostalgic wave. So you see time flies as everyolderone says and I am reluctantly looking in that direction at this precise moment. Goodnite.
