    Taking a Day Off
    Taking Sunday off. I don't usually, but my son Dan would have been 30 today.

    September 19, 1980 - May 13, 2002

    The site he created:
    Weirder Than Marshmallows

    About Daniel on NightFire Productions

    My post about Dan from last year

    Someday his writing will be published to a wider audience, working on a novel he wrote now.

    He was brilliant. I miss him.

    I bet you miss him fiercely. Maybe you can just spend some time with his writing today and enjoy his writing. *Hugs*

    That's the plan Judi, I'm reading some of his writing that wasn't attached to some of the "finished" pieces. I'm actually reading some of his writing to see if I can incorporate more of his writing with my photography. He also had a file where he kept all of his favorite quotes and maybe I can get a few of those on images today.

    Probably will go for a walk, he liked to encourage me to photograph and on days that have to do with his "anniversaries" I tend to go get some awesome photos. Not all of them have made it to the Gallery yet, a dream he wanted me to make come true.

    Thanks for the I need them today... it's been a hard weekend.

    ladidah - Dan loved cake!

    Added his applications for an internship with the Emmy's for the years 2000, 2001, and 2002. The last one explains what happened.

    I know I'm new here, but I have a big heart and feel for people who are in pain. I'm very sorry about your son, but I'm very happy to hear that he can live on through his writing and stories. He is actually born in the same year as I am, I'm December.
    I hope that all the joy you spread by sharing his inspiring stories will come back to you ten fold.

    Not only did I read about him, I shared about him with friends (other aspiring writers).

    Btw, since you said he loved cake, I bet he would have loved CakeWrecks.com too. That site is my current addiction.

    We need to get those aspiring writers together. That is one of the things Dan was dedicated to, helping other writers.
