walking after midnight

In a month and a day I'll be 29. For some people, 29's as far as they got. Two other people who lasted a bit longer and had a more direct impact on my life, well, I woke up this morning and they were both gone, too.

One of them I saw after the Singapore trip. She thought I'd moved there, and asked how long I was here for.

The other I saw a few years back, at somebody's picnic. "when are you coming back ?" she asked. We had the opportunity to visit. We were working just down the road for a while, even. But it never quite materialized, even though we'd periodically talk about popping over one lunchtime. Just a couple of weeks ago I heard about her troubles, and then, at lunchtime, I got the news.

I'm so sorry. Both of you.
