The Time is Now :: Kathreen Ricketson

I learned today about the tragic death of Kathreen Ricketson (head of www.whipup.net), and her husband. Their passing took place almost five months ago. I am devastated to learn of this news and my heart goes out to their surviving children who are only 10 and 13 years old.

The family had been on a beach in Australia and both Kathreen and her husband drowned while snorkeling, and the children were on the beach to watch the horrific unfolding of this situation. You can read the details here.

Kathreen was a woman of immense talent. She was very kind to me and my projects in my small corner of the world. She generously helped promote one of my books when it was released last year, and we had corresponded not so long ago about a project that she had invited me to participate in.

I'm happy that she and her family were taking time to journey together to bond and create memories. I am profoundly shaken by the fact that she and her husband are no longer on this earth. I am deeply sad for their surviving children.

If there is anything that Kathreen's life and untimely death reminds me, it's that life is short.

And the time is now to live. To love.

It is with sincere respect and condolences to the Ricketson family that I publish this post.
