as this evening comes to a close, the first of my thirtieth year, i am tempted to reflect and/or unwind something profound. temptation however, will not be getting the best of me tonight. tonight i'll keep it simple. my 20's we're mad, break neck and beautiful; everything and nothing i could have ever expected. i am thankful for each moment and humbled by the unrelenting nature of the universe, fate and our astounding inability as humans to control either of the above and more. should i be so lucky to have the next ten years be as wild and fulfilling as the last, it will be this simple statement i offer on that night as well. thank you.
