"Summer Wind" - Sinatra: Best Of the Best (2011) - Frank Sinatra
This song always succeeds in putting a tear in my eye over Labor Day Weekend… I rank Labor Day up there with New Year’s Day as the saddest day of the year… sure the weather may stay nice for a while and summer doesn’t officially end until mid September but it saddens me whenever summer unofficially comes to an end today. This song will always be the ultimate summer send-off and I feel that even though it’s heartbreaking it finds a way to remain optimistically uplifting.
My beloved girlfriend informed me, in a rather alarming manner, that after an MRI to investigate a facial twitching that she has been dealing with intermittently for the last 10 years, that her doctor advised her to head directly to the Emergency Room at Johns Hopkins. I left work immediately on Thursday and headed down to the hospital. Come to find out, she has an AVM or a arteriovenous malformation in her brain… I breathed a sigh of relief when they informed us that this is a treatable condition and not a brain tumor which I had been fearing. They admitted her around 3AM on Friday morning and she stayed until Saturday after a large round of tests - CT scans and angioplasty specifically.
Regardless, this is just a note to let my friends here on Tumblr know where I’ve been and to remind everyone out there to never pass-up that kiss or hug goodbye each morning, never pass-up the time you can spend just enjoying your loved one’s company and most of all, be sure to tell those you love how much they mean to you and how much they are truly loved.
