Out of the Blue

I was thinking the holidays falling on weekends this year would make this period seems like less of a lull. As it turns out, I think I was mistaken. I feel like I'm already set for things to pick up again, but that will happen soon enough, so I don't need to rush things.

Thanks. W/o getting preachy, I think she'd be ok with me saying she smoked from the age of 14, and (in her 60s) she went from diagnosis to death in under a month.

Don't smoke, kids.

I want to echo that good advice. My dad was a heavy smoker at one point, and he was dead very shortly after his lung cancer diagnosis as well.

Does this include vaping? I see young adults doing it all the time.

honestly i dont understand the concept of "celebrity worship" and mourning their deaths as if they are part of your family with which you share biological bonds and intimate life experiences of a very personal nature

I'm not worshipping celebrities. I'm acknowledging their talents in the various forms that affected my life. From the laughs provided, to the admiration for their skills, to the memorable music, to the cheers of overcoming the odds and winning the battles. For it all, I thank them.

Nothing fictional like rapture will happen, that's for sure. In the meantime here is a good movie to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oaS_N1zsqo
