Today, the third of six on Sid's maiden Michigan voyage, contained a great number enjoyable activities, including eating breakfast at Carmen’s Café
and visiting my mother's statue
and sharing lunch and a walk in Grand Haven with my ex-girlfriend Megan
and consuming food truck food with a whole bunch of my living relatives
and stopping by the 160-year-old casa that's inhabited by my godparents.
While we were doing that last thing my dear godmother and I were sitting on her front porch discussing the loved ones we've lost and how impossible everything can seem sometimes and she said something that I had to write down because I thought it was so beautiful and true.
"Life goes on, even when we think it shouldn't."
