March Forth, With Love.

The fourth of March has been an important day for me for many years. It is a happy day and it is a sad day. First, happy. March 4th is my girl J's birthday, and yesterday she celebrated the big 3-0. I stayed up until midnight so I could make sure to wish her a "Happy Day" ...

AWESOME.

Do you know the expression "pour your heart out"? Well, that is what I wish I could do, but not just in the idom-way that implies the sharing of your deepest secrets and fears; I also am someone who tries not to say the word "literally" when I don't actually mean something literally (eg. I don't ...
