time subjectivity - or - the summer of death

[ #19133 ]

Let's see.
My wife has been up north for the past two weeks, tending to her Mom, who is dying from some kind of internal cancer.

My cousin, (not very close, but not all that distant) is dying *soon* from a cancer that started in his mouth and has now found it's way into his brain stem.

A buddy of mine is losing his dad in the next few weeks to pancreatic cancer.

My company is losing one of our biggest clients at the end of the year, they have informed us, to go with one of our competitors.

Another one of our clients has been unreachable since last Thursday, all we can find out is that their office here in the states has been shut down by the police/FAA.

Now, it seems to me that with all this going on, the past two weeks should have gone by fairly quickly, but instead, they are dragging by.

Two more weeks until I have to fly to Rhode Island and drive home with Anita, and it seems as if the day will never get here.

Then, of course, she is going to go back up for the last several weeks of her Mom's life. That is NOT going to be a fun time for anyone.
