I don’t like death

Woke up this morning feeling glum and depressed. I found out yesterday that someone I met at Fantasm a year ago died over the weekend. He drowned while on an outing. Just one of those freak accidents that you can’t explain and never expect. I didn’t know this person well, but from my brief association with him, he made a striking impression on me. He was sweet and funny, and full of life and energy. You could see it in him, his enthusiasm and his wicked sense of humor. I quite liked him and I’m stunned and shocked that he’s gone. I’m also exceptionally saddened that I didn’t get to know him better. I meant to, but I thought it was just one of those things that could happen in the fullness of time. Except time has stopped for him now, and all my opportunities to cobble a friendship with him are gone.

I don’t like death.

Going to go hug Matthew now.

    Sad news, Eugie. I’m sorry for your loss – especially under such tragic circumstances…

    Your thoughts remind me of those times I wake up in the middle of the night with an inexplicable, complete awareness of my mortality. Death is such a thief. The only thing it’s good for is making you truly appreciate those still alive.

    Here’s a big electronic hug!
