4/100 Remembrance


g

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}




How do you feel about death?  Is it your friend - a passage with well trodden stones that you look forward to exploring?  Or is it something that you fear – a dark tunnel leading towards a bright light, a progress through horrors towards an unknown destination?  When thinking about my 100 people, I am bound to come across some who are no longer living, but I never expected it to be a dear friend.

What if? - Housecleaning and Vodka

So I know my house is a mess. On my day off, I do laundry and then usually spend the rest of the day working on my writing or drawing. In the meantime, the house gets a bit dirtier *sigh*. I want a self-cleaning house. What brings housecleaning to the forefront again?

A dear friend suddenly died yesterday morning. It's done a nice job shaking up my world because he was a couple of years younger than I am. He had some health issues - diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol issues, etc. But generally speaking he was such a presence, it's really hard to visualize the world without him in it.
