Death’s exit moves a fella to do

leave a comment »

I just got news that a friend died, early at 63. Wirt Atmar was vital to the very end, a big part of a community of HP 3000 computer users. This fellow held aloft such a bright light for decades there. And like any death too soon, it makes me consider what I’ve done this week, and try to do more, believe more, love and enjoy more.

What’s too soon? Definitely any week where you’re still pushing out belief, research, teaching or passion. Wirt had all of these on offer this week. And now I regret never having visited him in his hometown of Las Cruces. A great reason to put more friends oton my travel list. So perhaps death can move a fellow to do more travel, more sharing, and keep fit to enjoy many more years.

All I can add is a moment of silence in memory of a good guy’s light winking out.
