It seems to be all around, and to be honest it is frightening. I said to Ian weeks ago how precious life is - to which he told me that was bullshit and that life is "fucking cheap". Too many friends are dying and falling ill. It makes me appreciate every moment even more. This morning on my short, 15 minute drive into work there were about 5 dead animals on the roads. A deer, two cats, something unrecognizable and a rat. Depressing, here one minute and gone the next.
