So young, so young

And now for something a little more personal.

My brother went to three funerals within a week. All of the deceased were in their early teens. [Insert Multiply tribute videos and comments of condolence.]

The past few days have been emotionally strange. High-low-high-low-high-low, like a roller coaster I wish I could get out of. But when you're strapped onto the seat, there's no other way but to enjoy it and take everything in.

I don't want to be morbid, but if I died today, it would be fine. I have not left anything unsaid, though there's so much that I want to do in this lifetime.

Enough of this diary mode. I'm going to paint.
