I was doing a bit of blog visiting yesterday when I noticed Jams' name on my list. It came as a shock again to realise suddenly that he's not blogging any more. His was one of the blogs I would visit on my regular tour and to remember again his sudden departure made me sad.
I have four names at the base of my blogging list, each of whom I had come to know through blogging and who've died. Three of the deaths were very sudden and unexpected; Dumpling had sort-of disappeared from the scene due to ill health but it was still a shock to find she'd died.
I didn't want to wipe out all trace of them so have maintained the links to their now dormant blogs as a small tribute to them. I enjoyed visiting each one of them and I'm sorry they've gone.
But how short is life that it can end in a blink of an eye? Grab it now, while you have the chance.
