I’ve been away from the blog because I lost a dear friend I’ve known nearly my whole life, with no warning. She was healthy, and too young to die. I am still processing what happened and it’s been nearly three weeks now. What a reminder of the brevity of life.
I flew back to the Midwest to say goodbye, and thank heaven she was still alive when I got there. My friend wasn’t conscious, but I just wanted her to know I was there. She died the following day.
After so many years in Southern California, I wasn’t really prepared for a snowfall in October. This is how it looked the afternoon before I left:
It quickly progressed to this:
My flight home connected through Salt Lake City and we flew right over the Great Salt Lake….
And then the city itself, which I hadn’t seen since I was around ten years old.
Before all this happened, I went to Las Vegas with my son and his girlfriend for a Lantern Festival in the Mohave Desert. I’ll share those photos next time.
Carpe diem, everyone….
