The offshore event 2, 10-14, MP Renfrew

Knowing Nik W. will attempt 2 wire-walking feats on Sunday makes me so apprehensive, I want to cry; and I can’t articulate it. It’s not ‘fear’ as much as ‘pain;’ and maybe because he’s partly attempting these feats to overcome the death of relative(s) who fell to their death.

I believe in the resurrection, I do. I just feel for his family.

This is an interesting article:

I don’t think it’s a mystery why people (in their study) are having more heart difficulties during both hotter and colder weather: it is a sharp gradient (a quick change in air pressure, humidity &/or temperature) that makes cells swell in and out, and that limits oxygen intake and absorption in the nasal and sinus area. That’s what they should look at next. (The article says researchers aren’t sure, but I’ve talked with countless people this happens to.) I’m not an M.D., but know some things from experience.

If you feel extra-tired during weather changes, try spicy food and drinking extra water.

We have received a record number of cards and condolences, and hosted a memorial gathering at my dad’s home rather than the church. People kept pouring in, and everyone said similar things about my mom, that she always, always made them feel good, and was so sweet to everyone.
