    Another rotation around the sun and I am so grateful to everything this beautiful life has given to me. I am especially grateful to my wife & child who woke me up with a stack of pancakes and this beautiful letter.

    "Mario
    If we had bank, I'd cook up a feast & bake you a cake & invite everyone who you hold dear & we'd smile & laugh & be. I'd take you somewhere beautiful, buy you an I-Rig & a fretless & get cherry blossoms inked on your arms...
    Alas, we do not. So I was going to buy a pack of cards & put a lil love into transforming them with lil rectangular reminders pasted over the faces of them... And then we moved & well... You know...
    So with out further delay,
    On your birthday (&everyday)

    Me"

    I just wanted to share this with my brethren in Talkbass. All of you have been such a source of inspiration, support, & knowledge. It's been a tough but great year for me. With the support of my family I have been able to chase my dream and continue to play music while doing odd jobs. It's really made me value the things in life that fill my heart. Thank you!
