This is going to be a short post, I just... Need to vent a bit. My closest confidant, friend and supporter died a few weeks ago. My little bird, Ori. It's a very long story, but he objectively saved my life a few years ago. Without him, it's not certain I would be here. With that said, I hope my team understands my absence these past few weeks. I've not been doing well. Better now though.
He didn't live long, not even half of a normal bird's expected life span, but he had a pre-existing condition so a full life was never expected. But he showed me how to find happiness when you seemingly have no reason to. He showed me to have fun and enjoy the small things, even on a bad day.
He could never fly, but he always soared high to me.
