Lately, I have been surrounded by cancer. Unable to empathise, I have switched to corporate mode, finding solutions for much-needed funding for a friend who is terminal to being impatient and unsympathetic to my mother, who has since had surgery to remove cancer. In between these distractions, we became parents to 4 tropical guppies, which became crazy due to insufficient water conditions on our part, many hours I sat watching, researching, and fixing our mistakes. Still, for one, it was too late—our first pet loss in a long time.
