Days Like This

Facebook was a bearer of sad news today, the mother of one of my high school classmates died and my favorite high school teacher died.  Dave Snoffer taught for about 10 years.  He arrived in a small farm town in the thumb area of Michigan from Toledo, full of enthusiasm and ideas.  He was remarkably human, not afraid to be direct, not afraid to show emotion.  I was one of his TAs my senior year in High School.  He touched my life and the lives of thousands of others.  Also was news that a high school classmate has been in intensive care in California for two weeks.  He had lung cancer a few years ago, lost a long, the cancer is back and has metastasized into his spine.  He has lost movement in his hand and legs.  Not good.

J returned to Lexington today to teach for the spring semester.

The sun will come up tomorrow.


  1. :(

    a pox all around.

    and no sweet bear to hug.


  2. Oh dear me. So sorry. I wish I could offer a physical shoulder.

    Love you, Travel. (See my blog)

    Peace <3
