The Charlie Bravo Story


The average length of a Charlie Bravo post is 700-800 words; that has never been in any way planned, that’s just how it seems to have worked out over the last nine years. I’ve been told by many that the posts are too long for the Book of Face, but I have little to no say in the matter, as the words come and go as they please.
So, how do I tell the tale of Nama’s passing on this page, when I could write three or four long posts on just the events of the previous day? The answer is that I can’t. The “day before” was one of the most glorious days of my life, and I will not short change it by dumbing it down to fit into some social media construct. I’m instead going to try something that I’m VERY uncomfortable with: I’m going to record it for a podcast on Bravo Bytes. There are way too many incredible “coincidences” involved during the days preceding Nama’s untimely exit to fit into a multitude of FB posts. And then there are the surreal events that happened afterwards that prompted me to stay out west rather than skulking back home; I’m still not sure how much of that I can divulge, but you can bet that I won’t be putting THAT on anti-social media.
In the meantime, what I can say is that on that “day before” I met a man who lives out there that made a real connection with Nama and myself. As I can’t afford to run back out to Gateway right now to place the marker we had made for her grave, he has agreed to place it for me. Then, maybe this fall when the aspens are changing, I might just have to ride solo back west to pay my respects and take care of some other unfinished business in the area. There is much more to this part of the story as well, stay tuned.
It’s about to get crazy.
