Episode 7: Life Is Precious

Episode 7: Life Is Precious

Getting back into blogging has been a good way for me to slow down, and re-evaluate the important things in my life. I am living during a time gifted to me by my ancestors, where my life, while hectic by modern standards, pales by comparison to the plight of previous generations, whose survival depended on the provision of food, clothing, and shelter. I have been afforded the opportunity to shift my focus away from the monotony of day to day chores, so as to fill my little bit of extra time expanding my knowledge of the world around me. Even though the shackles of survival have been cast off, constraints of time, destiny and fate continue to disrupt our path through life.

What I have learned this week is a lesson I've regretted learning so many times in the past. Be it the loss of a family member, a friend, a colleague, or even an acquaintance, nothing prepares you for the sadness and emptiness that death brings.

Normally I would be creating content for this blog, by researching a new topic, to share with all of you. This week however I will be attending a funeral, and as I write this I remember back to all the others that death has taken from me over the years, quietly saying a prayer for all of them.

Thanks for understanding, and I will return next week with new content.
