My life has never been a peaceful one. I raised all kinds of hell when I was a kid, for any number of reasons. I even got into trouble with the law, yeah, but never too much to get me barred from the Academy, know what I mean? Then I get the wrong summer job, and it ends up costing me everything.

I’ve been up and I’ve been down...I’ve been all over the world and back again. I lived, I loved...I died, I lost, I did everything. I endured a lot of shit and I came to learn that it’s all part of living in general. Life’s a pretty terrifying roller coaster ride with no way out except through death or an end to the solitude.

That’s when Rachel came along.

I only wish to God that I’d met her a few years earlier. I went through some dark times after my wife died...if I’d known Rachel back then, maybe if I’d met her before I met my wife...things could’ve been different. Maybe Rachel would have survived that shooter, gotten away or seen danger coming. I mean, we’re trained for this stuff.

My life has never been a happy one, but with her? I tend to look at it as more of a blessing than a curse. And as of late, I’ve come to realize just how quickly that life can end.

Which is why I intend to enjoy it...hang onto it as long as I can.

Live it the way I want...with *who* I want.

And you can take that however you’d like.

No Easy Way Out
Wayne Kramer


No shot of sobriety
Will bury all demons
That demand obedience
In pure self-destruction
And anger and hangups
And funky behavior
No, it's not Happy Valley
No cheap ticket to Heaven

Plagued with indifference
Can't find the value
Searching for meaning
But we found dissapointment
In grinding frustration
While seeking out shelter
Then finding redemption
In the arms of a loved one

Yeah, I've flown on wings of madness
Sure, I've had a fall from grace
Yeah, it's all part of the process

There ain't no easy way out of this
There ain't no easy road home
There ain't no easy way out of this
Without your kiss and your hand to hold

No spiritual group-think
Or slacker detachment
Or 12-step Jesus
Or career opportunities
Or natural medicine
Can bring me the comfort
That's found in the arms
Of the one that loves me.

Yeah, I've flown on wings of madness
Sure, I've had a fall from grace
And I'm workin' through the process

There ain't no easy way out of this
There ain't no easy road home
There ain't no easy way out of this
Without your kiss and your hand to hold

There ain't no simple solution
There ain't no miracle cure
There ain't no easy way out of this
Without your kiss, and your tenderness...

Is there a contest I'm unaware of? One to make me cry at the drop of a hat? I swear Tom there's a betting pool out there right?

If there is, I ain't in on it...it's just you, me, and the facts. And NO Joe Friday jokes, or I'll tickle you 'til you suffocate, I am *NOT* kidding.

I wasn't going to joke. I'm glad I'm not right in front of you when I read this though, because... well you know that half chin-wobble pout I get when I see a puppy in the window? Yeah I got that look when I read this, and while I'm sure my play-by-play is enough to get you to make a face, I don't think I could have endured you seeing me react like this too.

Oh and you do realize that if I ever do actually die from suffocation this could be used against you right? I'm just saying.

*eyeroll*

You are such a goddamn brat.

Next time I come over? You *are* getting tickled.

Love you, by the way.
