We lost a co-worker last week. He was driving home from a party at 3:30 AM and hit a telephone pole. He was pronounced dead on the scene. I'm not sure if alcohol was involved or not. We were not that close, but co-incidentally, we did go to high school together.
It really drives home the fact that life is temporary, and it makes the fact that I feel so disconnected that much more scary. I just cant seem to......Engage Maverick! Come on kid. I really feel more like an observer than a participant in my own life. But I've been thinking, maybe if I could just shift my focas off of myself. Maybe some volunteer work? I write my own work schedule so this is very possible for me. But I'm scared. I know the people reading this probably don't understand. Just bear with me folks.
And now for some fun stuff, I don't want this to be totally mopey. K got us tickets to see Neil Diamond. I expect we will be the youngest people in the crowd. We have been waiting for this tour for years (sick I know, hee hee) and have been to see countless tribute bands. See the movie Saving Silverman if you don't know who I'm talking about, that movie is hilarious.
Rest In Peace R.D.
And away they go!
