    And then there were none

    Four months ago, almost to the date, I had two grand-fathers.

    Today, all of a sudden, I'm left with none. It's not like it's a big deal, considering there're a lot of folks who're abandoned by parent(s) or whose grandparents weren't alive when they were born or ... you get the drift.

    But it is a little unnerving to think of it.

    The toughest part in reconciling with death is when you think of the good times.

    I'd attribute most of my interest in reading and drawing to my maternal grandfather who passed away around a couple of hours ago. In fact, I'd probably attribute most of what I learnt during my childhood to him, especially when it came to inculcating a spirit of inquisitiveness and keenness to explore further. If it weren't for him, I probably wouldn't be as interested in etymology, astronomy, evolution or paleontology (among others).

    To think of it, I saw him just 2 days ago. He wasn't exactly hale and hearty. We all knew the end was near.

    But that's the deal with death - it always is sudden. Taxes are most often not!
