November 15, 2004Kiera is cool, if somewhat perplexing.
October 1, 2004Kiera has been my magic holder, truth holder, and muse for 15 years. I miss being able to drive over to her place, stay up all night talking about everything that matters, and leaving with a clearer purpose. Now that we're 2'000 miles apart, I have to make such an effort to connect, and i want her face to face. I have a credit card with an emergency Keira reserve. I will be using that soon.....
September 15, 2004On a cold Austin night many months ago, one of my closest friends said this to me...
"I accept you as you are right now. As you are tomorrow. As you were yesterday. I accept you wholly and love you for who you are."
The miracle of this statement was that I believed her. In the believing of her, I started to believe the statement as though I'd said it to myself.
Keira came into my life like a sparkling diamond unearthed from the rocky earth. A find so rare and precious that the memory lingers as a hallmark of some grand life achievement. I know of precious few whom I trust more. She is intelligent, articulate, tenacious, beautiful, talented, singular and wholly human. She reminds me of the breeze that you get standing atop a mountain. That powerful and immortal gust that reminds you that there is nothing you cannot be or do. She is a gift and one that I cherish everyday.
