Good morning from Conroe, Texas.
I hear the birds chirping. I feel the window blowing. It’s quiet out here. A day after losing my uncle, there’s a calm resting over me. I think about all of the years that’s passed, and he’s always been right there, all of my life — nearly in arms reach. He lived next door to me, so we saw the same world most days. But he was mentally challenged, so he saw it all from a bit of a different lens, a much simpler one. A lens that I’ve come to appreciate.
The world wasn’t as complicated for him. He just lived. He enjoyed old westerns, wrestling, and Elvis. He loved Coke and bread. He looked forward to his check on the first of the month, and we’d get his money, he’d buy me a coke too.
Simple living. He was a good man.
The family is now sitting outside, enjoying quality time with each other. It’s peaceful out here.
