Seattle sunny days and Jenga

Dean and I have been trying to pinpoint the time frame that he and I added each other on Livejournal. He found a post from 2003 and I am still positive that it was sometime in 2001. For close to 15 years we have followed each other's lives and cheered each other on through jobs and relationships.. ups and downs. Through loss and expectations, our own and other peoples..

We are still here. We are older and we have smile lines and life under our belt. And we are here.

I remember the fantastical birthday posts that he used to write and I still remember the first one that he did for me. Seattle made me feel very alone. But Livejournal was this balm that made everything that was hard just a little easier. You had this social safety net that you could pour your heart out to and they helped get you through.

Dean was one of those people for me. I am thankful for his friendship and for his continued part in my life.

I am very thankful that I got to hug this person today that has been a part of my life for so very long.

** Note: This entry was written by theda for my blog! It's a science experiment!

I really somehow thought Seattle was nearly equidistant between Canada and Portland, but that's totally not right. I'll need to come back and do a proper visit to Portland on my next Western venture!

Probably not as soon as I should, but maybe sooner than the last go!

Geography is weird. In my mind, Chicago is west of North Dakota, but all the maps say otherwise. So.

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around.
