This may be long and boring and if should not be posted please remove. As one becomes older I cannot believe how health can decline. For 30 yrs or so I never became ill. Have dealt with diabetes very well until recently and it is now a struggle. When I hit my 60's had a heart attack but came thru with a stent implant and did well. Three years later I came close to dying when I was shoveling snow in a big snowstorm and my glucose level dropped to 40 and was still dropping. Now one day when we were hitting 27 below zero I am getting up and starting bouncing around the room and could not stand up. Taken to the hospital and had pneumonia. Three days in the hospital fed a super antibiotic. Came home and was wiped out. Was asleep and someone touched me and I see my Daughter looking down at me. My wife had been calling for help and I did not hear her. A relative had called my wife and realized she was ill. Called my daughter. Wife has been in good health in general. She was rushed to the hospital and would have died from a massive infection through out her system. A few hrs more she would have been gone. Never really had problems like this until age seems to be a factor. What does this have to do with Photography. When finally home I started looking at photos that were shot for memories. Of friends and family long gone. Friends and family still here but good memories of the past and present. Never take life for granted. If are a photographer make memories for yourself. Now I hope to live long enough to see great grandchildren and create more memories.
