Happy birthday, DJ.

It's my little brother's birthday today and I'm remembering him tonight from far, far away. I've looked at so, so many photos and remembered, relived memories and had some good, long laughs. In that respect, it's almost like he's here with me. I've no children to call mine, but I so like being so connected to this man I've known all my life. I want him to become so much, to grasp at dreams and see them realized. Those are givens, perhaps. But, today, I just celebrate him. The day is his. Thanks for the ride thus far, little brother. Here's to lots more years, ones we can hopefully file under the good ones, even the great ones. I sure like having you around, even from a couple thousand miles away.
