I don’t normally interject with personal notes, but a friend and co-worker (and non-fakeologist) of over 30 years died yesterday. Normally, I don’t tear up and have a little cry, but unlike crisis actors, it is difficult NOT to when a situation is real.
I sympathise with Ro11o for losing his close friend of an even longer time.
While my friend had health issues and this was somewhat expected, it is still stunning knowing the finality of life. I will never see him, talk to him, or cajole with him again. It takes a few days of mourning I suppose to get over, even though I’ll be reminded of him frequently over the next while.
As a fakeologist, I have less stress from outside information. That gives more time to concentrate on being stress free and friendly with those close to me. Concentrate on being kind to each other, especially those that disagree with you. It will go a long way in making them live a better life.
Live better today, because life is finite – a truth no one will dispute.
