For recent posts on this blog on the sudden and tragic loss of Ashleah Emery, administrator of this blog and popular participant on Tim Blair’s and Andrew Bolt’s blogs, see here (details) and here (memorial page).
UPDATE: For some reason (maybe being an old Carolinian myself), the following song by James Taylor keeps popping into my head these last couple of weeks. It’s that last verse that does it for me. Video & lyrics below the fold.
We were ring-around-the-rosy children
They were circles around the sun
Never give up, never slow down
Never grow old, never ever die young [...]
Oh, hold them up, hold them up
Never do let them fall
Prey to the dust and the rust and the ruin
That names us and claims us and shames us all [...]
Oh, yes, other hearts were broken
Yeah, other dreams ran dry
But our golden ones sail on, sail on
To another land beneath another sky
