Pretty static, but I've always been driven by the same core need for privacy, space, nature and a lack of authority.

I have the same needs, just different ideas about how to fill them at different times in my life and a pocketful of regrets about the bad ideas.

My big bro was more like you: once he decided what he was going to do, he did it and nobody or nothing could stop him.

Kind of like the concept of yin and yang or using both quantum and classical physics to understand your whole world.

We were a great team. We wrote some cute little stories together. Who knows what we could have accomplished if he were still here.

Our oldest brother would have been celebrating his sixtieth this December if the dice had fallen a different way and the three of us had gotten to be kids together. Since my man-born brother probably presented as black rather than caucasian and he was probably adopted by a USAmerican family, I believe that he is out of life expectancy and that I do not have the financial resources to visit his grave, much less find it.

You might get to be 60, though. That would be cool. I won't be there to see it, but it would will still be cool.

You won't have to slap my youngest kid around for me any more then because he'll be well over 16. ;)
