Today, one friend gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Today, one friend died of a suspected heart attack.

Life. Death.

I'm so thrilled for my friend who is a new mother, and her husband, a new father.

Devastated and stunned about my friend. I saw him almost every day last year and the year before. He was, honestly, the most smiley, happy, energetic man I have ever known. He was so kind. And so young. He was a competitve dancer in his early 40s. Young and fit. Heart attack. They don't 'go together'. They shouldn't 'go together'. Wishing we were back in NZ with our dancing family there.
