that was the week that …….

This week the close friend of one of our community died tragically; a singer song writer whose times coincide with mine died and the Boston explosions occurred prompting sorrow, alarm and various other emotions.

And I got the ‘flu’ – the second flu/cold virus in 2 weeks, so I guess my immune system has been coddled a bit lately.

While the death of the singer-songwriter prompted nostalgia, the pain suffered by those who knew the young woman who died also hit a chord. Death is difficult but harder when we know how young the people were and how many people’s lives will be affected as they go.

And so to the Boston Marathon: BuzzFeeds posts this: an outline of the Boston massacre/catching the perpetrators, notable for the inclusion of an image from Syria sending condolences and reminding the U. S. of A that this is what happens in Syria most days.

And so to the ‘flu’. No work tomorrow, more whiskey and lemon and more sleep.
