Oh, I see now. Not sure why I didnt get that the first time around. Thanks for explaining for me anyway.

This is true - I cant believe how short life seems now that I have some years behind me. When I was younger it didnt feel that way. My dad was 38 when he died. He should have known this at that time. I get angry at him.

> For a start, it's one less reason to kill yourself, because you will die soon enough, even though it might feel very long.
> I've had a few good friends who have killed themselves and perhaps for that reason they are often on my mind. Some are from more than 30 years ago. Mainly I admire their resolve and determination, regret that I never told them in time what they meant to me, and feel sorrow that their lives ended and in that way.
> We live in such a relentlessly superficial upbeat culture where the voice of despair is unwelcome, so when people vote with their feet it no longer surprises me.
