full desertness in souls

Last night we lost a coworker to sudden illness. She was neither old nor infirm and she will be terribly missed.

In light of that phone call this morning, the finality and the shock of the loss, the trivial things that usually preoccupy me hardly seem worth noting. You will have to wait a few days before I'll be able to forgive myself for digressing back into the land of idle drivel.

Life is too short to not love hard.

I am so sorry.

I'm sorry, too. Life and death are merciless and mysterious and awesome. But... I do look forward to your ramblings :-)
