Shaggy, you were my Spirit Guide that cold dark night in the hills,in December 2010. No one saw me wander outside to sit by the fire alone. Except you. You followed me, sat beside me, and together we shared the silence. You knew I was lost, and hurting, and afraid. But you took a large stick from beside you, and stirred the sparks up from the flames,and they roared high and out into the darkness, and they became feathers. That was the night that you showed me the Phoenix in the Fire. And reminded me WHO I WAS again. I carried that fire back with me, and have kept it burning in my heart ever since. A part of your light will always be here with me, in every fire I light, for the rest of my life. Thank you, my Golden Soldier. I'll see you around.
