There’s something about getting older that makes you more aware of your own mortality.

Yesterday saw the passing on of a family friend after a horrendous battle with cancer. Kathy Malan leaves behind a husband and 16-year old daughter.

In a few days time myself & many friends will remember the tragic death of Barry Marshall last year in September.

I’m deeply affected by these deaths. It’s as if the stakes in my life have increased in the last few years. Marriage and fatherhood have made my life more precious in a sense. There’s so much more to lose than when I was a care-free teenager.
