Dang, my cousin just passed away this morning. Really teaches you that life is insubstantial and could end at any moment, and that we should cherish everyday as if it was our last.  :'( Poor guy, he haven't got the chance to experience enough of life yet.

Oh, sending you big comforting hugs, Inky

It does put things into perspective... :-\

Damn. Sorry, Ink.

Ah, yes. Perspective. People say you should live every day to its fullest and always remember to appreciate what you have, but I think humans just aren't well designed to do so.
I'll notify your next of kin... that you sucked!

I kind of needed to hear that these days.

@Inks, I really am sorry to hear about your cousin. Much hugs your way.

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

So sorry, Inks, my sympathy sent to you and your family.

I am sorry for your loss Inky.

Sadly it is one of the great truths that the older you get you know more people who die. I can only hope that in the future it is when people have reached their time and are not taken from you young.

I just did some long overdue tidying up and reorganising of my living room. It's a surprisingly satisfying activity. I've also started doing a bit of yoga, by watching instructional videos on Youtube. I used to do it fairly regularly in my late teens. It really is good for mind and body.

I’m in the emergency room again.
This time for pain in abdomen and back which sent my blood pressure sky-rocketing to over 200.
Poor Mrs. JMack, sitting by my hospital bed yet again.
I think this is kidney stones, though I also have a gall stone sitting around waiting to make itself felt at some point.

This is just not my year.
