My folks asked me to send them some pictures of my kids for a project they're doing, so tonight I've been sifting through a million images of my beloveds (please, please be safe).

Today I heard about the death of a friend's son in a plane accident. It's the devastating thing--this boy, full of life, just 25, gone just like that. Even just hearing about it, it's the kind of thing that shakes you. I sometimes have to talk myself down from the cliff of my fears for my kids, and now their kids--I think most parents do, at least sometimes. It's a thought you barely allow to enter your mind, and then you have to glance off it. It's unbearable. I am thinking of his mother and that's another thought I have to glance off--it, too, is unbearable.
