Life Is Only Short If You Haven’t Lived It To Your Full Potential…


On Thursday, I got on the bus, different from the usual train I take home each day after work. This is because I had an appointment across town I needed to get to, and this particular bus route was the best way to get there. Suddenly, while listening to the song Ashes and Wine, I felt a strange pain shoot across my chest, in a heartfelt way reflecting on my conversations with my friend Duncan. I actually felt the urge to cry, not knowing why I felt such a strange pain.

Today, at the airport early morning, while seated at the gate waiting for my flight to board, I noticed the beautiful sunrise taking shape across the clear skies near SFO. I decided to snap the photo and post it on Facebook, with the words…Today is going to be a great day…until, I opened Facebook to discover my friend Duncan who I spoke to last Wednesday on Facebook, had died suddenly, and overnight…

It took me hours to post this entry as I find myself unable to cope with such a loss. A loss of a wonderful friend with an amazing heart, limitless imagination, and with the best of intentions is always there for you, no matter what.

I suppose Duncan had lived to his full potential in his short life on this earth…otherwise, there is no best explanation for what happened, the news this early morning on Facebook breaking my heart into a thousand pieces…
