“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”

Guess I'm thinking about death rather a lot - first Roadrunner and then the mum of another topix buddy.
Amazing quote, so well expressed,
the unexpected step, I 'felt it'
as he wrote it GREAT choice Tony..

You may be thinking about the passing of friends,
but, you are also showing your sensitive side,
the world would be a better place with more folks like YOU.
Warm thoughts.

Here's a centuries old song about a loved one
who has 'passed'
I think it is beautifully expressive and the harmonies
here are just about ... perfect

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitesimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling.~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.
