86/366 [Spoiler]

Fiftysix

On this day, this many years ago I ceased to be an only child and became a big sister, an unasked for, and ultimately unrewarded position that came with far too much responsibility for someone who never likes letting anyone down. When my larger than life, ex-policeman brother was felled by a massive heart attack in 2003, I was completely unprepared for the physical pain of grief. It never really goes away, the tears and the sadness. I didn’t see them when I took this photo but it seems appropriate that these numbers look like they are shedding tears as well today.

Gary, Happy birthday wherever you are. I hope the sun is shining, the sea is calm and the wind is at your back. Love you, miss you.
