To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget."

We lost our uncle T this weekend. Much too early, much too young. Isn’t it always like that? So many tears have been shed in the last 24 hours, but I’m incredibly thankful for this big, loud family of ours.
Hold your loved ones tight, folks. You are never guaranteed tomorrow.
We love you Tom! Always and forever.
Fat, heavy rollers. We love you, T-Tom.

Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
"When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."

I can’t sleep. RIP Tom. Today was surreal … if that.
