“Goodbyes are not forever, are not the end; it simply means I’ll miss you, until we meet again.” .
People keep telling me to share how I’m feeling, that in time it will help me on my journey without you. Tho the pain is ultra real right now, I’m taking the advice to share your story one moment and one day at a time. .
The last time we were at this border was to drop you off 6 years ago so you could go on an epic journey thru the desert. You had a huge backpack with all of your stuff and told me you would be alright, and it was something you had to do. 2 weeks ago, I struck out on my own adventure thru the desert.
Timing is so strange, but you called to me to still go, I guess it is in our adventure bones that we share, so I took you with me on mine. As I spread your ashes along the epic paths I took, I felt you with me more than I ever have. You were proud of me, and told me to keep on.
1st photo – Colorado side for home, Utah side for adventure. 2nd photo- on top of a beautiful mountain top in the middle of the desert around a cluster of trees, 3rd photo – a sunset that called out to me to come closer, to breathe easy, and to remember that even in sorrow, there is always something beautiful to hold onto. You are my inspiration for greatness as you always have been. I love you brother, like I loved you then, and like I love you now. Rest easy.
