Guess who’s back!?!?!  Yea man its  one half of your favorite thought-provoking pair returning to stir some stuff up.    I guess our site title fits us well,  the way we go missing for so long.  Looked up and we haven’t said anything in a couple of months, doing a lot of nothing and a little of everything.   Well I have returned in rare form and I come baring gifts.  For starters this post is strictly for all you good people out there: the followers, friends, casual drop in visitors, etc.   In my most humble of voices THANK YOU.   We have officially hit the two year mark for the site and I know we wouldn’t be here without the support of everyone.  This year was not as productive as it should have been for us, slacked a lot on the writing tip.    In retrospect numbers increased, so somebody out there checking for us.   With that said we got two years under our belt.   Sophomore slump hit us hard, but don’t let that keep you away from checking on the BLWNL crew.

I want to apologize to everyone, I have been quite busy doing a bunch of things in my professional as well as personal life.  I still have deep thoughts and debates with anyone willing to listen, so my mind is always working.  As I mentioned I have been busy professionally, started a new job last week; been in training this week. The training this week is actually the reason for this post.  The training I was in consists of gang intervention, but it has been more than that for me.  There was a section speaking on deaths, funerals, and vigils.  This segment really caught my attention, and got my thoughts flowing again. Essentially it was a conversation about the celebration of life, as oppose to the grievance of death.  The celebration of life really clicked to me, and how people tend to view funerals.  Most view the wake, the funeral, the burial as a sad time… Rightfully so, a love one was lost.  Very rarely do people view death as a “celebration.”  Ironically my co writer happen to write a post about time.  After reading his post (Can I Have Some More Please) it just added fuel to the fire, felt I could share my thoughts about a few things.
