So, when my phone rang last night, with news of an event in Chicago in a few weeks time with my girlfriends, I did what I normally do, and said, "No". Then thoughts of Kevin's untimely death and his persistence in wringing a 'Yes' out of us all, made me change my mind. I may not be able to do all of the crazy things in life that I would like to do, but I can do some...and a quick weekend trip to Chicago isn't really that nutty, is it?
So long, Kev...I love you and you will always be a part of me.
And to you all out there...hug your loved ones tight, be they human or furry. Every day is a gift, and sometimes we let the drudgery of living blind us to it. Make love, not war, and do joyous things with your time.
