suddenly acutely aware

She was washed under the guardrail and into the sea

“Extremely sad news about Sarah and we are all quite shocked and suddenly acutely aware of where and what we are in this world.”
Peter Thornton

“Prior to the Clipper race she had done other expeditions including spending a year in Sabah, northern Borneo, working for Raleigh Malaysia. Sarah had also led teams in Zambia, Botswana and Namibia, had been mountaineering in Nepal and did an 18-day trek down Africa’s Skeleton coast unsupported. Sarah had also run a marathon and was a divemaster.

For man goes to his eternal home while mourners go about in the street.
Remember Him before the silver cord is broken and the golden bowl is crushed, the pitcher by the well is shattered and the wheel at the cistern is crushed;
then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.
“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “all is vanity!”
Ecclesiastes 12:6
