Ever since my wife & I were dating, I have been telling her that I will likely be the first to die. I am 4 years old than her and in Singapore, women outlive men by an average of 4 years. So statistics dictate she will be a widow for 8 years. I can dismiss that as a population figure but numbers are a fact and individuals experience it. I came across a Harvard medical article on whey men live shorter lives than women so I felt it was good read to put that up as a reflection.
Dear wife, I will go first
I read this comic strip from last Sunday Times. Our human mind likes to simplify things so that we can understand them. But a close study of all life forms shows the wonder of even a unicellular organism. Its DNA structure is more complex than a computer code, the chemical processes numerous and multistep, the organelles like nano-robots in a giant factory.
