As the whole world embraces Autumn/Fall, and acknowledges that the year is waning and Winter is on its way, it's clear that nature isn't the only thing slipping in to darkness and experiencing death. All around us there are reminders that human beings - like the rest of nature - must one day reach the end of their life cycle.
I'm sure from that first paragraph you can guess where this post is going.
At least some of you may remember me mentioning Eleri (my neighbour from upstairs)'s Dad and how he had cancer and didn't have long to live. Well, on Saturday October 11th 2008 he lost his battle with the cancer, which had spread quickly throughout his body in the past couple of months.
I found out yesterday.
I really feel for Eleri and her family at the moment. It was only in May of this year that Eleri's mother passed on (also from Cancer, I believe). And now her Dad... *Sigh*... It really makes you think about how lucky you are to still be living and breathing, doesn't it?
