Be bold, be brilliant, be badass.

You’re my best friend.

You’re my best friend.

There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure.

Hello Stranger
You came just in time
I look for your face in a crowd or in line

Hello Stranger
Not a moment too soon
See, that old picture’s fading in the drawer of my room

Now toys have gone lost, baby teeth have come loose
There were accidents involving stitches, split juice

Report cards were shown, and one time I got sick
But it’s nothing I couldn’t catch you up on real quick

Hello Stranger
I saved you a place, and it hardly seems strange…
Now that I’ve seen your face

Whenever I’ve been afraid to make that leap I thought back to that moment when it seemed like my Mom’s entire world fell apart and yet she was still convinced of her love for my soon to be dad. Time gives your life a unique perspective as you get older. You see that the challenges that once seemed so scary when you were young really weren’t that scary at all. Looking back you’re glad you took the risks. Like my mother said “If you don’t get a few bruises and scrapes along the way then you’re not living”. And if time teaches us anything in this crazy world, it’s that nothing worth having ever comes easy.

I love shark eyes - you can totally tell they’re looking RIGHT AT YOU…
Also, on the shark week, they didn’t explain the difference between flipping tonic and rubbing tonic.  From what I can gather, when you flip a shark they stop breathing and totally go into shock - they can suffocate and die this way.  When you put a shark into nosey rubbing tonic, they keep breathing through buccal pumping, using their mouths to suck in water, simulating ram ventilation without moving.
If i’ve got this wrong - let me know!  OoO
