Had plans for progressing on the car but a family emergency come up – my parents are getting old. It’s neither good nor bad – it just is. As the hospital, you just never know what you’ll see or hear, and I heard the nurses talking about a patient who’d just been admitted. Seems he was driving along minding his own business when a sportbike rear-ended his car going about 100 mph faster than he was. The impact was so great that the bike rider’s body entered his car and killed both backseat passengers. The driver was admitted for neck and back injuries, but I can’t imagine the mental trauma he’s going through. Stuff like that is a reminder of how one second we think we have everything under control and the next, the world’s turned upside down. Don’t mean for this to be a downer, but just a reminder to be doing what you want – now – because we just never know.
