Beyond a certain point there is no return. This point has to be reached. - Franz Kafka.

Comedy and Tragedy are the Janus headed embodiment of human nature. The same event in life can be viewed from either vantage. My father, child piano prodigy - computer inventor in 1971 (before it was cool), a real genius, is dying from some organic brain disease.

We think he has a rare, rare disease:

It seems that from the comic angle, it is God's sense of humor that we die by the thing that defined our life. Or from the tragic angle, it is a most undignified situation that the same gift which made us special is taken and we fall into oblivion.

I'll write more later...
