Happy Birthday M!

I couldn’t find a different sibling song, so this is the one I’m using today in honor of my brother’s birthday. He’s feeling really down about getting a year older (I relate, as I am sure many others do too.), but I am trying to convince him that life is to be celebrated. There are so many people who’d kill to be his age and have his problems, so on today and every day I want him to know I’ve got his back. I was asked quite specifically not to do a tribute to him or mention him by name (which is fine because I only ever call him M any way, unless I’m being mean.), so this will have to do.

Happy Birthday M! Thank you for being there for me even when I don’t want you to be, for bringing me soup when I’m sick, cupcakes when I’m down, and heating up countless ice packs for me whenever I am down for the count with a migraine or Fibromyalgia pain. You are a total pain in the ass, but you’re also pretty awesome at times too. And NO, I will not tell you what I got you.

What Makes A He…

What Makes A Hero?

“What makes a hero? Courage, strength, morality, withstanding adversity? Are these the traits that truly show and create a hero? Is the light truly the source of darkness or vice versa? Is the soul a source of hope or despair? Who are these so called heroes and where do they come from? Are their origins in obscurity or in plain sight?” ―Fyodor Dostoyevsky

A Big Part Of M…

A Big Part Of Me Belongs To The Moon…

“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”  ―Deng Ming-Dao
