Between Two Seasons

Jamie Tworkowski, Q contributor and founder of To Write Love on Her Arms, contemplates the recent death of two men: Matthew Warren, Rick Warren’s son, and David Kuo, who worked for the Bush administration. Tworkowski writes on his close friendship with Kuo: “I spent my Easter at a hospice house in Charlotte, with David and his family. As I drove to the airport that afternoon, there was a stretch where, on my right, the trees along the road held not a single leaf. On my left, a perfect row of dogwoods stood covered in white, their full blooms declaring spring. It was a picture that echoed the day, an Easter spent between two seasons—between life and death, heaven and earth—but something in me has to believe the dogwoods win in the end.”
