Oct. 27, 2006- I sense a disturbance in the force…

Something doesn’t seem quite right… I can’t figure out what this feeling is, but I feel there is something wrong. Visited a friend of mine the other day who is not doing well. He is in his 70’s and hasn’t been eating or drinking because of the pain he is in — he looks like a skeleton. This was a guy who 10 years ago had younger members of the firehouse working to keep up with him during drills. Its sad to see him like this. He has had a hard life as a forest ranger, but is a member of the Adventurer’s Club, has sailed almost all over the world, and has saved more people in his lifetime than the combined total of everyone else I know. His wife is taking care of him, but it is taking its toll on her too. I’m hoping he can recover, but it doesn’t look likely to me. This may be influencing my mood a little. I hope that is all it is.
