This post is a treacly one, runneth over with sentimentality and rife with platitudes. If you are lucky enough, as I am, to have people in your life who inspire you, challenge you, light a fire in your belly and motivate you to think deeper, create more, and see out of a different lens, then for the love of all that is right and good hang on to them and appreciate their existence every day, forever and ever amen. Life's too short to fritter away your time with dull folk. Keep learning, for the moment you lose your thirst for knowledge is the moment you stop growing and start dying.
Stay thirsty, my friends. (But please, refrain from quenching that thirst with margaritas, because the result will be this agave-sweetened ode to how great everyone in my life is, and who the hell likes to read about happy people, anyway?)
