I completely forgot, until I saw an email from my aunt to the family list, that today is my brother's birthday. I think this is the first year since his death (coming up on 12 years ago) that I haven't thought about his birthday as it was coming up. I imagine it has something to do with the amount of work I've been doing, but it probably also has to do with the passage of time. He would have been 31 today. Happy birthday, Kyle.
