I thought of Rae today and suddenly realized that I am as old now as she was when she died. It was a horrible thought. I remember her 50th birthday celebration out in El Paso - with grandpa and Chris. But nearly six months after the half century mark, here I am. Alive but barely kicking, on most days as of late. Another horrible realization. So it is time to wake up. Carpe Diem. At the very least it is time to put up all those family photos somewhere in this house I've lived in now for more than 3 years.
