In loving memory

While I've been fortunate enough to not have had a dear friend or family member's life taken, grieving times still call for reflection.

The few but sweet memories I have of and with you are what can draw so much sorrow from me, and I can only imagine how your family, Eric, your friends, your sisters, and everyone who ever loved and will continue to cherish you are going through. Nineteen and missed can only yield one word: tragic.

May you rest in peace, Arlene.

Drive safely.

Words from the wise.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change, for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.
Charles Morgan

It is foolish to pretend that one is fully recovered from a disappointed passion. Such wounds always leave a scar.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Perhaps it is due time for more. Ink, that is.
