I wore layers yesterday and was nice and toasty 

it says in new York it’s going to be 18 degrees today which is like British summer time? Surely not 

And drop like a Rock overnight so enjoy it but if you're out tonight make sure you bring a sweatshirt

Ok I am exhausted!! We’ve had two days in NYC, we went to a Rangers game at MSG on Tuesday night & I had pho for the first time! Im officially a real hockey fan though I even bought a tshirt and a hat! Then yesterday we got the subway to brooklyn and walked across the bridge, went shopping in Times Square & then headed to Central Park. We had our traditional Olive Garden too.. those breadsticks are up there with American bacon

I guess this is the Memorial thread so i just need to say ....to people who might understand .....I so wish Rosiejaneymary was still here to see No Nukes and sprinkle some of her positivity and Bruce dust history on its release. I watched it last night and couldn't help  but think she would have loved it and added a lot to the discussions.

Hearing Rosie, I felt an overwhelming sadness, and had to move away from the tv, but then thought, Marsha, would be loving it.

I felt bittersweet emotions for a lot of reasons. Happiness to be seeing it of course ....But a huge sense of aging and mortality as well. Mostly at how absolutely incredible Clarence was at this point in the bands history ..... I can't say if it was purposely mixed this way ....But you can literally hear the crowd explode everytime Clarence plays a solo.

And at some point it hit me again that i really miss Marsha's presence here. I loved that her first show was 2 nights before and 45 miles from mine. She would always have that over me.... But i also loved that from a Bruce show perspective ..... we were both christened by The River.

And of course both wished we had been lucky enough to see a Darkness show.

I was so thrilled to hear the Darkness CD at Wembley.

Thanks for checking in @rachelharms  I am glad you took the time, even though you are so sick - we do appreciate it

I am going to pin this one to the top for a week or so, to be sure everyone sees it, and knows you finally made it to the bench you inspired, and hopefully we all will be able to visit in the days and years to come

i am so happy Rach you had a great time

i love the picture of you all on the bench with Marsha :wub:

She would indeed have wanted you to have had a good time

same reason im trying really hard this year to be more into Christmas

Health wise , please be on the mend

i know from experience flying while sick like that takes a while to recover from

I dont know if its the prolonged altitude or what but it seems to make bronical things so much worse

but i really feel for you in that respect as i have been there and never want to go through that again

 

glad you home safe

now rest up and get completly well

love Nicky

Thank you :) I really hope if and when the tour starts and people come from all over to start visiting Asbury again everyone will get to see the bench. I’m just so thankful that we all could make it happen and it’s comforting to know that there’s a place for her always in Asbury

Awww thank you Daisey! :) yeah Christmas I always think of Marsha because every year she would send me a huge box full of stuff all the way from NJ including peanut butter Santa’s which were my favourite. I looked forward to them every year! I still have a bunch of stuff I’d collected over the past year of stuff I’d got for her to send over for her birthday and for Christmas. I’ll have to find a way/someone to gift them to! 
 

I’ve had to work so haven’t really had much time to rest although I did go home sick a few days because I just couldn’t even stand. The last couple of months has been super tough health wise and I’ve never had to really worry as much as this so I just feel exhausted! 
 

I hope you’re doing well though & can have a happy and healthy rest of the year

Super pleased for you Rachel, and thanks for sharing the photos, I am sure you will return often in the future to sit with and share a few moments with Marsha.

Sorry to hear about your health issues, maybe the trip came just a little too soon for you after your time in hospital, that is a lot of antibiotics, and my aim would be to get off them as soon as possible. Hope you are able to do this and you can rest up and get better over the holiday period, good luck and best wishes.

I’m so glad you got to see Marsha’s bench. The story and the photos are very touching. I hope you feel better soon.  

Thank you! I’m just so glad I haven’t ended up with Covid at the same time. I’ve been so terrified of catching it, especially with the new variant and I don’t think my body would do well fighting it right now. 
 

I’m so happy I got to see the bench and I can’t wait to visit it again and spend some more time there

Update: I’m on the plane to New Jersey!

By some miracle I’m actually spending Christmas & New Year here so I will definitely try to get some photos for you all and it means I can get some more photos of the bench too
