Papa

June 2015 has arrived…and of course with its arrival comes another anniversary.  Not of my sobriety, but rather of the day my father departed this earth. 13 years now, dad.  I have lived half my life without you…all I can say is how grateful I am to have had you guide me through the first half.

One of the only things I understand for sure about this world is how utterly bananas it all is.
One piece of perpetual inspiration & hope that gets me through is the fact that a person as utterly brilliant as yourself was able to live a life not plagued by cynicism, and embrace a true appreciation for the world around him.

My struggle is my own but there is so much more to me than that — and there are so many more out there, who have it so much worse.

If you could do it…then so can I.
