tribute #321 - Peter (1929-2012)

seizing life with keen
delight, in-love with

his wife since WWII.
I gave a shy "liked it"

inadequate for years
of him writing part 1

of his autobiography.
there's no leeway of

time with seniors. he
never finished book 2.

Couldn't give 'em enough encouragement I guess. But its gotta come from within!

true. each death is a reminder to be present with people now, cherish, speak up. last time I saw him, his wife has just left him. In their 70s, imagine. Apparently she died not long after then. The obituary speaks as if they reconciled. Got to be careful with seniors. They're on a shorter timeline than average. There's no looping back in a decade or whenever.
