In the ringing of the broken temple bell

This week, someone I knew died. We weren't especially close, but I knew him and his family. I felt only for them, and have done everything I can to help them through their grief.

This week, someone I never met died. He was a hero of sorts to me; combining the sorts of talents that I fancy in myself into something wonderful to bring the best out of people with real talents.

When I think about the former, all I can do is muster strength for those that need it. The latter, no personal connection to me, fills me with regret and a mourning for an era now past.

I don't think that this speaks well of me.
