Saddened -- 03/03/10

It is a dark, gloomy day. Gray sky. Cold and damp.

Snow has been falling all day, but not accumulating. The weather seems appropriate to my mood.

Eli's father has been fighting cancer.

He died during the night.

This is a tough burden on his family.

I lost my father eighteen years ago. It was painful but not unexpected. My father had been eighty-five years old when he died; Eli's father was younger than I am. Eli is in his mid-twenties; I was in my late forties when I lost my father.

So... gloomy mood, gloomy weather, not much to say.
