Not that any of you really get concerned when I disappear for days...but I've just not been in an LJ mood lately. Those of you that do care I try to IM so you don't freak out anyhow...so really this journal is more of a message board and a place to put things I don't want to forget.

Anyhow...I just wanted to remind myself how precious life is. I found out one of my friends that I've know since kindergarten died in a kayaking accident last week. Then today I found out that a couple I keep in touch with occasionly on LJ had to experience the lost of their unborn child. One of my closest friends from high school went through that experience last year. I guess all this stuff just makes me realize how valuable this lifetime is. While Lindsay has another baby on the way next month...there's no way to bring back Sam and there's no guarentee that another baby will come for anyone who experiences a miscarriage. Not being able to have children myself, I'm greatful I won't have to have that experience.

But yeah...although it sounds trite and hokey...please...realize what you've got by just being here. No one ever really knows what's going to happen to them tomorrow and you really should try to do everything you can to enhance your life while you're here.

I just heard about Sam this morning. That's absolutely horrible :( I am going to send a card. I graduated with his brother and I think that's the least I can do.

Exactly! And it's why we should hang out sometime SOON :)

Sorry about the messages on your phone today. I found out there was a wake for Sam Larsen,and...I felt bad for bugging you. And to top it off it rained tonight so I couldn't have burned that fucking board anyway. So yeah...we should hang out and burn it together,then go have a cup of tea at my house and just chill for a while! It's been too long :) And I got this awesome pear white tea in Minneapolis at a health food co-op.

Do I have your interest peaked yet?? :)
