Hi Marilyn,

I heard about your accident, and that you’ll be laid up for a while.  And I
heard about the wonderful things you’ve already done in your life, which
this will interrupt.

Just remember that experiencing redness for only 5 minutes, and then life
ending, would be worth the millions of years of evolutionary struggle
before life was able to experience something so phenomenally wonderful.  To
say nothing about all the other experiences we are all able to experience
every single minute of every day with our friends and families.  It is a
shame that everyone tends to take all that kind of  phenomenal joy for
