Impending fatherhood is grand! Given that I am a motorcycle-riding trapeze playa and my love is a motorcycle-riding burlesque performer, I am certain our little girl will have some fun hobby options. We have a great community of friends who are dying to help teach her and I feel very fortunate for that.

So yes, I think having this little girl will be FUN but...

Have a good holiday! biggrin XOXO

feyne:

Thank you for the message you wrote to me in response to what I said my latest blog, well that was back in november and I've been very slow to reply, but here I am !

I've also been coming here less and less, mainly because of how insipid / uninspiring / unexciting the site has become to me. There are still pretty girls and sometimes wonderful sets, but most of the time surfing on here just makes me feel bad about being part of it. I don't want to give up on my values yet I don't want to give up 'tout court' on the website... erf.

The last words of your message really touched me, and I wish you too nothing but the best. x

Yesterday was my Birthday. I'm celebrating it here in Hawaii, which is amazing. Everything was brilliant until my sister called to inform me that our mother died. Since then, not so happy.

What a brilliant summer this has been so far. My broken foot has mended and I've been able to run a bit; after 20 months of commuting to LA, I have taken some time off work to enjoy riding my motorcycle and just enjoying Seattle again; my sister gave birth to my first nephew; my lover and I have decided to live together, and...

I have a meeting in Redmond (about 15-20 miles from Seattle) in a while, and since the sun is out today I decided to pull Emma out of the garage, clean her up, and ride her out and back. After finishing the cleaning and warming up part, it occured to me that my FOOT IS BROKEN AND I CAN'T RIDE A FUCKING MOTORCYCLE. I...

2010! I am very excited about this new year. I understand that the mere changing of a few digits on the calendar doesn't mean much, but it is still symbol of a fresh start. 2009 had its share of sadness and frustrations, but for me those were balanced by a great deal of joy and gratitude. I am grateful for all of it.

Now...

tremodian:

Hey, I saw you in runners and was curious about running barefoot, then noticed you're in Seattle. Then I noticed you have a really honest, moving blog. I just wanted to say hi, and thanks for writing.

I read Nixon's blog and decided I would share this. I wrote it early this last Spring.

Note: this one's a little heavy, but it feels good to share it.

His name was Paul Emmet Smith.

My name is Matthew Paul Smith.

On the night of March 24, 1994 I walked out of the Good Samaritan nursing home and into the rain. I...

About a year ago I got into running marathons as a way to support my little brother, who has blood cancer. Since then, I've run three and raised several thousands of dollars toward research and support for blood cancer patients. On Sunday, one of the many friends I have made passed away.

I was asked to speak at a memorial celebrating his life, and...

I'm sorry you lost your friend frown I have lost both my mother and sister to cancer and it's awful. Fuck cancer is right!

I agree-having been through a death, my advice tends to be things like 'how many death certificates did you get? Get three times that many'.

Okay, so I'm a little drinky while I write this. Apologies.

I've been gone for a week, but today I sifted through my mail and found this letter from SOS Children's Villages with information on the child I am going to support. Little Ban, the child I knew and loved who was recently killed in a street accident, is passed away and...

I doubt that I'll ever really stop grieving for Ban, a little girl in Thailand I sponsored, but life goes on, right? We find joy when we can.

I'm flying home to Seattle tonight and am pretty excited about the weekend's prospects. Tonight I'm meeting friends for some late sushi at Shiro! Tomorrow I'm working on one of my vintage...

I am broken.

Tonight I got this email:

"Dear Mister Smith. we regret you to inform that one of you young children died accident. Ban was a young girl. Friends loved her and the monks. She was loved. We miss her."

A few years ago I spent a month travelling by motorcycle in Thailand. Little Ban was selling flower necklaces at midnight in the Chaing...
