Apparently Marshmallow gave SirEats whatfor a little harder and a little closer to his cornea than is good for him.

  1. Ms Bundel, in a post at Wizards and Whatnot (https://disqus.com/home/discussion/allthingsrowling/jk_rowling_reveals_what_she_told_rickman_about_snape/#comment-2466629266) discussing the loss of Alan Rickman links to a post on public mourning of person we do not know. Ani quotes this as the nut of the matter.
    So do we have the ‘right’ to grieve for someone we don’t even know? Absolutely. The day we feel we cannot grieve for a hero is the day we need to question how we are approaching grief in general. And maybe through this process, we can even learn how to approach mortality and personal grief in a more uncensored way.

    The whole article is worth reading (link in Ani’s article linked to above).

    I though this and posted it there and am reposting here.

    This is a part of it. We are connected to all those we have not met. If their work connects with us, (only connect said Hemingway) even more so as they become a part of us.

    No one is an island, Entire of itself,
    Every one is a piece of the continent, A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manor of thy friend’s. Or of thine own were:
    Any one’s death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in humankind,
    And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    John Donne (Modern language and spelling).

  2. My Tuxedo cat, Zonker was attacked in the eye by the somewhat vicious cats of a somewhat vicious room-mate in the 80s. He made a good recovery, but with his glazed over eye and one ear tip missing (due to his stubbornness in not coming in out of -40 degree cold) he look much tougher than the shy sweetheart he was.

  3. I had a scratched cornea once, as a preschooler, when a fellow preschooler accidentally hit me in the eye with a piece of cardstock. I recall it being rather painful but there were no lasting effects.
