I feel I have grown as a human being and embraced reality. I have learned to accept my place in the cosmos and contribute in whatever infinitesimal way I can to the ongoing struggles of humanity. And it is your legacy of courage, kindness and honesty that I can credit for growing in that way.
... but mostly I learned to grift and spend the money whoreing with hookers! (sounds less grandiose)
Sometimes I find myself pondering the question: “If Mum could see me now, would she be proud?” I’ve come to realize that this question has two answers.
Was one of the answers "no, you dirty little pervert, you disgust me and live contrary to everything I believed in"?
