Weekday Lunch

I took off mid-day from WFH (work-from-home) to meet a friend over lunch. It was good to catch up over a somewhat luxurious and langurous meal. I think it would have been more relaxing if the service hadn’t taken so long, and if I didn’t have a post-lunch meeting to get back to.

Anyway I had the paccheri with crab which was really rather good. Since I forgot to take a picture of the food, here is a snapshot of the menu.

I learned that 2 ex-colleagues had recently passed away, both younger than me. One had cancer, the other passed suddenly in her sleep and hence it was totally unexpected. I wasn’t close to either of them, and so I was hearing new things about them.

All in all, the news was a poignant reminder that we never know how long we have. It is so easy to get caught up in the business of getting through each day and missing the bigger picture. It also brought to mind how everyone we meet has their own struggles and issues that we are not aware of.
