“Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel” Hamlet, I.3
Another day, another opportunity to reevaluate life and its mixed blessings. How fortunate indeed are those of us with an abundance of friends to enrich our lives, and how sad (not to say enraging) when those friends are forced to confront challenges to their happiness, health, and even their lives.
Our friend Gene Pyrz, a founding member of SIR and a uniquely talented, charismatic fixture of Winnipeg’s theatre, film, and music community is now faced with such a challenge.
The lone positive aspect of this sad, enraging news is that it provides us with a valuable opportunity to affirm and celebrate our friendship with him, and a chance to offer our support and encouragement.
