Feeling mortal

There are a number of things I was thinking of  writing about. Yet today, I do not feel like it.

Yesterday I heard that a friend had had a very serious work accident earlier during the day. This left me feeling extremely upset, raw and… mortal.

I managed to speak to her today and she seems to be in the best care possible. After fretting since receiving  the call, hearing her voice was an immense relief.

The line we walk that we refer to as normality is such a thin one, we do well to remind ourselves of this from time to time and to value all that we have – and so frequently take for granted. Moments like this really drive home the point how this can change in less than the blink of an eye.

Heal fast and get well soon, His.
