My good friend, writer Kelly Grey Carlisle, has an incredibly haunting essay over at The Rumpus. It’s titled “What He Took.” You should sit down now, right now, and give it a read.

And what’s more: Kelly is one of the best and kindest people I’ve ever known. Here’s to friends (and swim buddies) like KGC.
