i remember.

on a more sombre note, i just realised:
five years ago, the advisor passed away at the age of 47.
the thing is .. more years have now passed than the number of years that i've known him.  it's a very odd feeling, but maybe not:
the people that influence us most and the good mark they leave on our lives .. these are things that cannot really be quantified and should not be, either.

i've known some people all my life and others for just a few days or hours, and the time i've spent with each of them is hardly proportionate to their place in my life and thoughts.
so what are the rules of arithmatick, the measurement of time, in regards to people?

i still remember.  i still think of him,
less often than i did before ..

.. but i still do.
