happy birthday

I think he would be 38 today.

I like the shore better in winter. We’ll draw lilies in the sand if we can’t find any, and we’ll pretend some are orange with flecks of red. I won’t drink another pale ale tonight, though, even if it says its name is Phoenix.

  1. 😦 no words of wisdom, solace or substance on my end, but please believe me when I say that I’m sorry. I very nearly lost a younger sibling on more than one occasion, and the thought of what I’ll do if/when it happens terrifies me.

    1. Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to mislead. My younger brother, the one wearing the Army uniform, is still alive. My cousin Erik, unfortunately, died in a car accident last month. Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate them.
