I’ll Take My Chances
I don’t want to make a whole post about this past year and everything that happened yet but I also feel like coming back I should give some context of where I am. My best friend left this life in March, so grief is ever present. I’m sure at some point I will talk about it more. Anthony’s touch will be on a lot of posts. He recommended books. He encouraged me to post things like A Touch. There were books we read together. He turned me into more of a music and podcast addict than I was before. He added to my tattoo plans. Many of these were things I planned to post about anyway.
This year hasn’t all been bad. Bayside was one of his favorite bands. In July I went with one of my great friends to go see them perform in Carrboro. It was my first time seeing them and I cried but I had a great time. I only took the one picture that I used here, because I wanted to just enjoy the moment. I haven’t been to many concerts and it was exactly what I needed.
I’ve laid myself out a schedule that feels doable. I’m embracing the weird and I hope you’ll join me on the journey. If you want a feel for Anthony, take a listen:
