A Tribute to a Friend

It's been somewhat of a refreshing week. A lot has been cleared, a lot has been seen and a lot has been understood.

I pray that a friend of mine finds his way out of the mess he's in - and just when it's about to unravel, too. Well, irregardless, I doubt he can go down from here, so it's all good.

I remember months and months back I talked about it with a friend of mine. I told him that it was impossible to improve due to the fact that it was characteristic of him to be like this - that given the state he was in it was impossible to ever change for the better.

Well, months come and go. And in a sense this is a tribute to a friend of mine who has found his way around at last. I don't think I can write a lot, but I suppose I'll try.

In no way a god, in no way a class above the rest, in no way a name that will be immortalized in histories past. And perhaps, like the rest of us, a small part in big things. But more importantly, also a big part in small things.

When he first started a blog, I had another conversation with a friend of mine. I knew it was going to be nothing but a testament to the fact that he was what he was and his blog would just reaffirm that identity. Who knew that with its revival it would end up as such? I respect the person for it.

It is determination and understanding that bring someone out of Nigredo. Help, though not required, can assist the process. But irregardless it is always a matter of celebration when someone manages to accomplish this.

I give my due respect to my friend who I believe will soon accomplish this. The future may very well be bright now.
