Then, of course, Waarhorse passed away. A year later, Kerry stopped going to conventions, and two years after that, she also passed away. Waarhorse is gone, Kerry's gone, even that particular candy bowl is gone; the conventions remain, and I, who bore witness to it all, still have it in my head. But there will be some time (hopefully in the still distant future) when I'm not at conventions any more either, and that small running game will have evaporated from history.
I don't know where (if anywhere) my thoughts are going on this topic. It's just something I found myself thinking on when I woke up.
That said, hug somebody you love today. :) While you can.
