I figure a human's lifespan is somewhere between 65-110 years. Lots can happen in a year (but it goes by so quickly). I've seen people, animals, etc. go from the paradigm of healthy to death or near death in less time than a year. One must feel blessed to still be here but also one is haunted. Here we are not able to be smug because we are actually not able. Lots of people who go through this have a predispostion to something: whether it is perceptional issues, depression, anxiety/panic, psychosis, or clinical dissociation.
So what's another year?
