I have missed Aaron so much these past four years. I think about him during those big life event, like when Gwen graduated from high school. I also think about him when I am off on some crazy adventure. I laugh and think to myself, “Aaron would have loved this.”
I wish you were still here. You should be here.
On this day, four years ago, my brother Aaron died. I don’t visit his grave often. Instead, I wear his dragon necklace everyday. I also like to drive around and listen to Sciatica, his favorite band.
This song perfectly expresses how I feel, so I decided to share it with you today.
I got my first cassette player when I was about 8 years old, and someone gave me a tape with “Somebody’s Knocking” by Terry Gibbs. It was the only cassette I had, so I would play that song, rewind the tape, and play it again.
The song isn’t considered a classic or anything like that, but it will always have a special place in my heart. It brings back so many memories and makes me feel like a kid again.
I prefer living in rural communities. As you drive away from the city, there are fewer and fewer cars on the road. There are also long stretches of road surrounded by woods and fields. However, traffic jams can still happen even in the middle of nowhere.
Be you and ignore the haters.
Looking at old photos this past week, made me think of this song. I hope you enjoy it.
