I'm not lost, I just don't know where I'm going.
But I'm determined to enjoy the journey.

女暗部 - flowers

It's been a week since I received the news, it's about time I write about it.

Margrete Somerville, a dear friend of mine, recently passed away. Like practically all my other friends, I didn't see her often. I think the last time I saw her was ARCON last summer. I can still hear her voice in my mind. Always cheerful, she could tell me it'll work out and even in my depths of despair I'd believe her.

I think it's still sinking in. It's so incredibly unfair, but that's how life is. You never know who you are going to lose next. And it is a great loss. To me, to her family and friends, to the role-playing scene, and to humanity itself. We've lost someone who made the world a better place.

I have no idea what to say. I don't believe in an afterlife, so I can't comfort myself with the idea that she's in a better place. The idea of her no longer existing frightens me, but that's what I'm faced with.

How do you guys deal with death? The realization that you or a loved one will someday die? I've been thinking about death a lot lately..

My mother died last year after fighting cancer for a year or so. I was more relieved than sad by then.

I miss my mom, but she told me before she died that all I had to do was think about her, and there she would be. And I guess that mirrors my own beliefs ... that as long as we keep someone alive in our memories, they dont die completely.

I dont know if theres an afterlife. She believed in one, so Id like to think shes there now.
