Just over twelve years ago, I was waiting outside a court to give my evidence in a case of murder. There was another expert witness outside waiting to give his evidence, too, and we fell to talking. I explained what I did, and asked him what he did.
‘Oh,’ he said of himself dismissively, ‘I’m just a fly man.’ more>>>
Moving and thought provoking.

This was a very thoughtful essay. Our good doctor's musings on the seeming unfairness of a good life cut short (and the Shakespeare reference) brought to mind a little essay by C.S. Lewis called, "The World's Last Night." I will not quote extensively, but I will include a link to a delightful short reading of the essay (about 12 minutes). http://youtu.be/leSj7SVX_dg
