Hi. Bye.

Part I: Hi.

April 2013.
Today is Muffy's birthday. Hi, Muffy. Happy Birthday. I love you. You are my best friend.

Everyone who meets Muffy either loves her or at least recognizes there is some weird hippy dippy force radiating from her. She is that good. This is legit.

In honor of her day of days, three things I love about her:

1. If you are getting gas, she hops out and stands with you.
2. I have literally never seen her be judgmental about someone's appearance. More than that. She's not someone who refuses to show judgement, she is someone who doesn't seem to feel it. Big diff.
3. She wrote this to me in an email a week or so ago after seeing Red:

"Seeing the play also reminds me that expressing through art is not the end and all. And if it’s the ego that wants it, well, the ego’s never going to be satisfied. Rothko finally produced the perfect masterpiece in Houston, but he still killed himself. So, we should be basing our actions on something other than the ego—of course on Love."

Part II: Bye.

People die every day. But others live every day. And overall, I have to believe the good is winning.
