Huge shout out to my brother Nick. He just graduated high school. He is an amazing person. He inspires me in a lot of ways. Cheers on a job well done. Love you
“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.” -Rabindranath Tagore
The recently departed was an inspiration, showing what is possible with a singular focus and pure intentions. A lesson as well, on how abruptly our transition may come. I’ve got to get busy living, thank you for that reminder my friend.
Have you ever been woken up by your headache? Sometimes I feel a twinge early on but I say to myself it’s bedtime I’ll just go to sleep. I should know better by now. The grim reaper and my headaches are on a first name basis, inescapable. Like a roller coaster inching it’s way to the top, it builds, slowly, steadily, unflinchingly. I try and roll, find a better position to alleviate the vice like grip at the base of my skull. To no avail. Incorporate it into my dreams, hold my eyes tightly closed and fight to stay deep in sleep. Like driving through a forest in the daytime the flickering lights of consciousness come, infrequently at first, but evermore, until the spotlight is in my face, and I am aware. I am awake, and in pain. And something must be done.
Thanks so much, I just wanted something really clean and I was really happy to find it. It’s a good match I think. I’m sure I have some blog questions for you, we should do lunch sometime this week.
