Death: Too Much is More Than Enough!

I said to someone recently that 2016 has had the ring of death in the air like never before & they attempted to shush me by saying that we just pay more attention to death now because we are getting older. I disagreed w/that statement then and still, now. 2016 is not even 5 months deep & the loss has spanned from celebs that we thought we knew because their faces were part of our history, to cousins I hadn’t spoken to in years, to former classmates, young neighbors, colleagues in business interactions who managed to weave their presence into my immediate circles, to family friends whom I’ve known since birth ~ death has a sting like no other ~ it has the ability to make you halt in your tracks as though an invisible cement wall blocked your path and engulfed your oxygen supply.

Death — man, this is too much!
