Back from the brink

I’m still not sure what I think about this, but I have to believe that calm acceptance doesn’t work for all of us, as it didn’t work for her:

“Do not go gentle,” said the Welshman. Said my brother. And, perhaps, say I, one of these days. Maybe.

I am told she died on the second of September 2018.

(Warning: Some bursts of salty language.)

    I’m thinking I probably better wait until after an *uneventful* (please, God) colonoscopy before I watch that; I’m already way too tense and imagine-y.

    I think I’ll wait and find out for myself what that’s like. I’m already a lot older than she appears, so a great deal of her perspective would be inapplicable to me.

    I hope to be a lot older yet…

    She made it to twenty-one.

    When you see a beautiful and extremely likable young person like this, facing her own certain demise….it does make one rage against the unfairness of it all.

    …but I’ll retract the word “beautiful”. What has that got to do with it? Hopefully nothing.
