As much as I would like to bring everyone along with me and watch over them through good times and bad I know deep down inside that we all have our own path to follow.
We all must make our own way in this world. The best I can do is wish all well and protect them best I can.
That being said everyone will taste pain and loss and unhappiness. I can not protect them from that. All I can do is be here when it happens and try to offer what solace I can.
This solace may take the form of slashed tires, a sympathy shot, sage advice, drink recipes or a shoulder to cry on. I honestly wish I could do more but I can not.
Such is life I suppose...
