i recently read a story in the paper about a father who killed his twin 3 1/2 year old twins. he tried to pass it off as them both drowning - one in a pool and another one in the ocean. while he was trying to save one, the other happened to wander into the ocean. something ridiculous like that. i then read the names of the two, blond, dark-eyed twins: krista and karen. it sent a shiver down my spine. my name and the name of one of my best friends.

there's a greek pastry/coffee shop on my block. i go in from time to time. it's a well-known coffee shop with regulars and with cute, artsy college students working there. about 2 weeks ago i learned that one of the owners got into a horrible bicycle accident. he collided with a rollerblader and was in a coma.

"who is this? the big guy?" i asked.

"yeah, one of them - they're twins."

they were twins. i never knew. i guess there was always only one working at a time.

he passed away earlier this week.

both very sad events - such senseless deaths. it goes beyond comprehension.

i got goosebumps when i read about the twin girls... very eerie indeed. it makes me want to hug you.
