Not a lot happening here. The heat index is around 110 F, but the breeze on the water helps a lot. Last night, it was actually comfortable sleeping on the boat which does not have any AC. We went to eat sushi which was excellent, and got groceries for the rest of the weekend on the boat. It is a treat to go out to eat a couple of times a week. I know that we could save a lot of money if we didn't, but it is just a special treat that we both enjoy.
Today I heard that Amy Winehouse died. Another young person dead before getting to really live much of life. Or at least not enough of life for me. When I was 27, I was finishing up my Ph.D. and totally immersed in my work. I didn't have time to think about much else. We were just married and both of us were so busy. I realized that there was so much more to do in life than what I was doing at the time. But I had a goal and persevered with school and work to see so many really cool things.
I am grateful that we both have lived to be here today. Maybe some people are just tired of living. I am not. I hope to still have a zest for life no matter what my age or state of health. I am still curious about what is to come.
