My dearest friend and confidante is gravely ill and my concern for her is having a weird effect: it’s making me sensitive to all kinds of exaggerated anxieties and sadnesses which are focussed on my family.

An excellent bit of advice in that quote, I'll make a note of it and try to follow it as often as possible. Enjoy the pancakes...
