I still feel the loss tho it is nice to drink decent beer and ride down my side of the road without a world of shit coming straight at me. I miss it still tho and it comes at me in heady visuals: the boisters of bougainvillea tumbling down to the dirt of even the most fly-blown shit-heel town.

Promising times for the old brain as well; every day we learn a little more about just how damn smart it...
