Once More

...Around the sun.

This has been a fucked up two years. I've tried to write this post three times today, and I'm in such a hurt and nasty mood I've deleted it all three times.

Every time I think I've let go of the pain and anger, I get hit right in the teeth with something. Sometimes it can be as simple as being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Tomorrow morning Jack and I will rise before the sun, and spend the morning in an undisclosed and (hopefully) unpopulated spot. I have given only one person a clue as to where I will be.

I will reflect on the last two years, and how much they have affected and changed my life. I will look to the future and weigh my options, such that they are.

Afterwards, I will come out of hiding and join friends and family. Around 5:30-6:00 I will go to BD Rileys and down a few pints of Guinness and a shot or two of Wild Turkey. Feel free to join me and feel free to buy me a pint. Even if I'm not in a better mood, I'll pretend to be. I've gotten pretty good at pretending to be.

Happy Early Birthday!
You're going to be fine. Everyone has good days/bad days. You'll get thru it. I won't be able to make it tomorrow - don't really want to face particular people.... :)
Love & Hugs

Regardless of your mood .. your feelings ... your outlook on life ... I want to wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I mean it.. and I'm sorry you're going thru such a rough time. It will pass - it always does....and I know that from first-hand life experience.

FWIW, I got struck by lightning at my birthday party out at Emma Long Park aka City Park this year!
Yours cannot be that bad ;)

Happy Birthday, Dude.

Just remember. You're only one day older than you were yesterday.

This, too, shall pass. Being with good friends is the best medicine.

Happy Birthday Bro. I don't think I will be able to share a pint with you today, but I wish you a great year going forward.
