A friend's cat died today and it reminded me of my cat Data, who died a year ago (the 19th). I thought of posting something about him, then thought better of it, but now ... I've been reading a book by James Alison - Knowing Jesus. There's a part in the beginning where he talks about what it's like when you have a relationship with someone and they die. He says the relationship's over because it's no longer mutaul ... that idea makes me sad.
