parental death 

My father didn't die that long ago, but it still felt like it was such, such a long time ago, a decade even ... Not in a "I've moved on" way (do we ever?), but in a "I was ... such a young child when it happened" (no I wasn't actually).

Maybe because the "me" then and the "me" now is so, so different that the "me" back then felt like a really young child ... One of the fastest ways to grow up is to lose a parent, after all.

Not really sad/in a grieving mood, just ... Why does it feel like it happened when I was a child instead of my teens.
