The winds are so strong that the rain is blowing in horizontal sheets. I just learnt that a friend’s mother passed away over the Christmas period, barely 3 weeks after being diagnosed with leukemia. And as I stare out the window, I am reminded that many years ago, her mother had fixed lunch for us when I visited. It was a very wet and rainy day too.
The sun is so strong that you can cook an egg on a car hood. I just learnt that a friend of a friend passed away this morning suddenly, after being diagnosed with cancer. It seems he had known about it for some time, but didn’t tell people. And as I stare out the window, I am reminded that a couple of years ago, I had had dinner with this friend of a friend. I can’t remember what the weather was like then.
Now all I can do is to mourn the passing of a generation.
