It's been a rough few days. Oh, hell...it's been a rough few years. Sometimes I just want to get off the roller coaster we call life, but then I experience a euphoric event and realize that this is what it's all about, and I don't want to leave. Sometimes it's not euphoria, but a different kind of awakening.
A high school classmate died yesterday. He had been ill, but seemed to be finally recovering, getting better...when it all went down. We weren't best friends or anything, but we had that bond that you get when you grow up with someone, experience life from a similar perspective. Thank you, FACEBOOK, for making it possible for me to know these things. Curse you FACEBOOK, for making me face life...sometimes too quickly, in too much detail, and when I am not ready to do it.
Yet, an event like this almost seems healthy as it helps to readjust the view, put things in a different perspective, possibly make us better understand what is really important and what is not.
I'm looking forward to my next euphoric event. I think.
