several of my violin students yesterday evening were uncharactaristically low-key. i learned later from the last student - an adult - that there had been a motor vehicle casualty in the community. then this morning, i learned of another. the son-in-law of a good friend @ work was in a head-on collision last night after dark in freezing rain. the driver of the other vehicle was his mother. both were killed. can things get more macabre than that? what are the chances? this young man and his wife have a baby girl only a few weeks old.

the freezing rain continues to fall.

the alberta rednecks continue to drive in it, far to fast. because their trucks have 4 wheel drive and snow tires, and because they're invulnerable. it will never happen to them.

sometimes the universe is a scary place.
