Today I am sad. Sad seems a paltry word, but it is one I will use. A friend I have had for nine years died yesterday. I don't wish to talk about how because it is too painful. It is pretty devastating for me and I guess I am writing this as a way of getting it out somehow. If writing is therapy then let's hope this is therapeutic. I hope everyone is well and please keep the beings you care about close to you, there is no telling how long we have with them.
