A Season of Loss

It’s been a season of loss for me in December and January. My mother-in-law, my brother’s father-in-law, and a good golf buddy of mine all passed away in the past six weeks. They were all loved by many and will be missed. Each one was a down to earth good person. Not flashy or famous or rich or powerful. Each raised their children the best they could and left a legacy of strong, independent children who are succeeding in the world. All that death leaves me melancholy and reflective of my mortality. I appreciate my mother much more, as do I appreciate in-laws that I actually enjoyed being around and who weren’t the stereotypical families that clashed with our own families. In that spirit of reflection tinged with melancholy, I leave you with another Sam Robson gem he posted to YouTube recently.

Suitable for the Neo-Renaissance life because death is something we all must confront on all four levels: Emotional, Intellectual, Physical, and Spiritual. May you all appreciate the wonderful people in your lives before they leave this world.

  1. Sorry for your losses, Chris. It’s tough when multiple deaths occur within a short period of time like that. May reflecting on the lives they lived bring you some solace.
