Marcus RIP

Our friend Marcus passed very unexpectedly.  Sad news for anyone that had the pleasure to know him.

Marcus was a full on character.  I considered him a friend, but certainly didn't know him all that well.  Whenever I got the opportunity to hang with him, he was always great fun to be around.  I'll miss those times.

I went through my pics and vids and pulled out what I had of Marcus.

Marcus was one of the good guys.  A true adventurer spirit, an easy smile and man, how about that hair.  Makes me smile just thinking about it.

Safe travels my friend.  You will be missed...



I'm rambling on...sorry. I love you all and hopefully when I see you sometime soon you will hug me and tell me you love me too....goodnight.

what's important to you
a day you can't forget
your wife's smile in the morning
a simple word from your child

what makes your heart strong
show me

I love you  
and I love this
all of this  

the hardest moments
the kindest words
the lies that I'm still handsome 
believing is seeing

how i've changed
less is more
silence is golden
less words are spoken

I'll steal this line 
sharing it
the author won't mind
I like people, I really do
I just don't like hordes of them, do you

cut your wood to warm your soul
heal from wounds you didn't ask for
ride to places you've pasted in cars
stop asking why

dance with strangers 
just fucking dance
because no one cares
you are beautiful
this is where I live
