As I am writing these words my batteries are empty when they should be full. Behind me are some of the most challenging and emotional days of my life. 2013 was a year that took it all from me. As I wave the old year goodbye here is one wish for 2014: Please be awesome.
In January I missed Mikko every second I was away.
In February I felt like somebody I didn’t know.
In March I watched him pause and wonder.
In April I returned to my beloved South Africa.
In May we were brothers in arms.
In June swim, bike and run made up for good times.
In July my mind was racing from chasing pirates.
In August I was headed upstream.
In September I was walking down the magic carpet.
In October I was in an Empire State of Mind.
In November nothing felt better than being a dad.
In December things stopped making sense.
Be near me when I fade away,
To point the term of human strife,
And on the low dark verge of life
The twilight of eternal day.
