Please excuse the cliche/sappiness factor. It's just one of those days.

I heard this song sometime during the afternoon at work. As I walked home--later than usual, so the sun was starting to set--I realized it was still in my head. And it all seemed fitting. (I'd hoped to get a really pretty picture of the sun just sitting on the mountain there, but by the time I got to a good stopping point, it had dipped too low.)

Today, a friend passed away. He had his fourth liver transplant since May, his third in 45 days, last week. He's been in Mayo Clinic in Minnesota since Christmas, fighting for his life, and just... he was too young. Thirty-four, and previously healthy, athletic, and full of life. I still can't believe it. When this all started, I never dreamed it would possibly end this way. The last time I saw him was on my birthday last year, in late November. G, you were one of the good ones. You'll be missed.

Theme: Song Titles (Angel Eyes, Jeff Healey Band)


Oh kate, I'm so sorry to hear he passed :( My thoughts are with his family and friends.
