O, Henry

Tend to stay away from: this type of story- a sad story from Daily Cal.
Not the focus here- but it-and other early departures- have come up a lot this year at Cal.
UD covers it in higher ed.
there is: something that can be done in SF in June about it
- so, in support of a good cause and as a resource
check it out.

Recently read this again:
Continuities - Whitman
Nothing is ever really lost, or can be lost,
No birth, identity, form--no object of the world.
Nor life, nor force, nor any visible thing;
Appearance must not foil, nor shifted sphere confuse thy brain.
Ample are time and space--ample the fields of Nature.
The body, sluggish, aged, cold--the embers left from earlier fires,
The light in the eye grown dim, shall duly flame again;
The sun now low in the west rises for mornings and for noons continual;
To frozen clods ever the spring's invisible law returns,
With grass and flowers and summer fruits and corn.
