Emotional rant below. If you are feeling down or sensitive, suggest you skip. Plus I'm angry and I'm going to lash out at religion a little bit. Apologies.

Yesterday I lost my aunt Rosie. She died in the hospital, the victim of a misplaced feeding tube. She had been pulling through until they ran the tube into her lung instead of her stomach.

I figured that, now that I'm back home, I'd take maybe .5-1hr per day to learn a little python because it's handy.

I have been remiss in my diariazing. Apologies. I need to share more, it’s good for me and sometimes I fear for our little community here.

My first boss just passed away. Some thoughts on that job and being my terrible mid-life obsession with the passage of time. Names have been changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent.
