Unexpected Baggage

Sometimes as you're going through life, no matter how well you prepare, you have an unexpected reaction to an event.

It's really easy to accept that in other people.  It's hard as hell to accept that for yourself.  While you'll eventually be able to figure out what you're going to do, getting to that point means that you first have to be able to accept your own reaction... which can be hard.

Really hard.

I just wanted to take this space to help the people who have helped me with that, and apologize to those I've inconvenienced or hurt when I reacted in ways I didn't expect.

And now something nice:  a picture of my girlfriend and I just before the Black Keys concert.
