It’s late and I’m looking at a suicide victim’s flickr gallery

I’ve been awake too long today. I had the sense to take a late afternoon nap, but the coding has taken me into Monday morning… I’ve enjoyed it, but I ended up chasing my tail for answers and I know a clear, rested brain will benefit me tomorrow.

I decided to bring up my RSS feed aggregator for one last flick through my subscriptions. I found a post on a psychology blog/site that reported on a scientist who took his own life last month. There was a Wikipedia link for more information. From Wikipedia, I clicked on the link to his flickr account.

There is something undeniably morbid about going through a dead person’s flickr account. I saw him there, at work, holding his son, at a party. I saw his art, his books, the view from his window…

According to reports, the scientist blogged two posts about his impending death. His last photo upload was almost two weeks before he died.

  1. I don’t know the situation. I didn’t know the man, but I care. Sometimes there is no other way to end the pain. I wish his spirit peace and freedom.
