~ From Spencer Burke

Just when I thought I could get re-oriented back to rhythm. The unpleasant unexpected happened. One feels invaded when your home is turned upside down (in this case it was my parents shophouse). Some portable property was stolen, and for my mom hard earned or saved money emptied, and I feel worse for my brother because the tools of his trade and “treasured” possessions disappear just like that. It’s an awful feeling …. it’s a numbing experience … it’s a glimpse of “hell” … you might try to “rationalize” the causes or the “reason” behind all this … we try to be somehow thankful no one was hurt in anyway … but it does not take away the reality of “disappointment” …
