"The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love." John Muir
Laying here, 54 minutes into my 36th trip around the sun, I'm thinking of everyone that has entered my life. For good or bad you've had an impact. Some bigger than you know, some less than you think, but all have had a part in my life. I may not always show or tell you that I care but if you are reading this, know I truly do. I wouldn't change a thing about these 36 years. If you are reading this I hope you know that I care about you, you are a part of my life and a part of making me who I am, good or bad and I thank you for being in my life because I've realized, more lately than ever that if you surround yourself with caring, inspirational, driven people that make your life better you are very lucky. On the first page of my 36th chapter I feel like I'm one of the luckiest men on earth to have all of you in my life, whether for 1 day or 36 years. I'm truly blessed. Thank you.
