"The Greatest Gift"
There was another tragedy close to me this week. A good friend lost her young brother to violence.
He was shot dead by a friend in a fit of rage over an affair of the heart. The complications were almost Shakspearian.
Love, jealousy, obsession, mixed with extreme, youth, and lack of life experience.
As you can imagine this is a nightmare bolt out the blue for the family and all the friends including yours truly.
I had composed this long screed about life, death'n all. You know how good I am at contrived bullshit. Well nevermind all that. What it really all comes down to is that life is a gift.
A gift from G-D.
That being so perhaps we should live accordingly.
