I've not been around much...

Hello...I've been in a bit of a creative slump.  A dear and long time friend of mine recently passed away; three weeks after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.

Needless to say the diagnosis and rapid decline were both shocking and heartbreaking. In the last two weeks we had some serious conversations, and some truly silly 2 O'clock in the morning slap happy ones.  I am glad we were able to giggle together one last time even though we were 3000 miles apart.

So, I say (and we all know this- but a gentle reminder cannot hurt) treasure your friends, family and loved ones. It can end in a millisecond.
