100 and Celebrating Life



Clear, Sunny, Hot


Today's font color is in honor of Brian Carlin, age 8, whose funeral was today. My kids attended along with a very large number of other people, many of whom dressed in orange and released orange balloons, because it was his favorite color. The best are taken from us too soon. I know he had a great positive effect on my kids, and we'll all remember him and miss him. Brian, I'm grateful to you today for getting me to focus on the feelings and sensations of life: riding my bike on the first hundred degree day of the year, feeling the breeze and the bright sunshine on my skin, smelling the flowers, and contemplating the simple wonders of life. So long Brian. High five.
