This is how you're going to reach out and get a hold of me unless you already know me, in which case... why are you here, just pick up the phone.

Just a little corner of the interwebz where I occasionally jot down a thought or two. Why do I do it? Partly to communicate in some way with you, the reader, and partly because it's some sad way of leaving a legacy of some kind I guess.


Short and Sweet


It's a sad day - a high school friend of mine just lost his 36 week old son today. To be honest, I haven't really kept in touch with him in over a decade but something like this transcends that kind of divide. The loss of any human life is tragic but when it's a child, or worse, an infant, there's an added sense of sadness. Is it because they've not had the chance to really come into their own? Is it something to do with the fact that children can be so adorable that it's hard to imagine death being anywhere near? Whatever the reason my thoughts and prayers are with my friends; I can only imagine what they are going through right now.
