however, that said... my heart is heavy these days, and it is heavy on behalf of someone that i love, someone who i have always connected well with, in part because he also celebrates those moments in his daily life.
this friend was recently diagnosed with throat cancer... it's already at an advanced stage, and is said to be "aggressive."
he's newly engaged, recently bought a house, started a great new job just a few months ago.... the world appeared to be his oyster. and now this.
i don't know what else i want or need to say.
my heart is heavy... but still hopeful.
