Jason.

Today marks year 13 since the passing of my brother Jason Andrew DeBellonia.
Even after 13yrs it never gets easier to think that I'll never see him again.

The human mind is simply too fragile to handle the concepts of forever or infinity.
People say that time heals, but it doesn't; at most it helps you forget long enough to move forward.

This year I want to share with everyone the song that we played at Jason's funeral.
It's from the soundtrack of the Crow and is called "It can't rain all the time."

Below are the lyrics and the video.

I love you little brother and I miss you.



Artist: Jane Siberry
Song: It Can't Rain All the Time

[SPOKEN:]
We walked the narrow path,
beneath the smoking skies.
Sometimes you can barely tell the difference
between darkness and light.
Do you have faith
in what we believe?
The truest test is when we cannot,
when we cannot see.

[SUNG:]
I hear pounding feet in the,
in the streets below, and the,
and the women crying and the,
and the children know that there,
that there's something wrong,
and it's hard to belive that love will prevail.

Oh it won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall forever.

Oh, when I'm lonely,
I lie awake at night
and I wish you were here.
I miss you.
Can you tell me
is there something more to belive in?
Or is this all there is?

In the pounding feet, in the,
In the streets below, and the,
And the window breaks and,
And a woman falls, there's,
There's something wrong, it's,
It's so hard to belive that love will prevail.

Oh it won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall
forever.

Last night I had a dream.
You came into my room,
you took me into your arms.
Whispering and kissing me,
and telling me to still belive.
But then the emptiness of a burning sea against which we see
our darkest of sadness.

Until I felt safe and warm.
I fell asleep in your arms.
When I awoke I cried again for you were gone.
Oh, can you hear me?

It won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall forever.
It won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall,
your tears won't fall
forever.

Cross Talk

Well, it was only a matter of time before the two blogs crossed paths (I'm referring to my Daily Yap & the CyclingCentralva blogs) and now I'm having a difficult time posting what to where.

The idea for the Daily Yap is more about Daily commentary on anything really, while the CCVA blog is more edged on cycling related goodness. Where I'm having difficulty is determining where some cycling related stuff might fit into both categories.

Example(s):
Lately I've been taking up commuting by bike, this has been more "thought" than actual "doing", but my intent has me researching and finding some cool info. & sites worth sharing and commenting about. And while the info. would be great for the CCVA blog, it's also more of the commentary type posting so it would fit this style of blog best.

So this blog may start to sit idle while I work on getting the CCVA blog up and running with richer more quality content, but I'll be doing my best to not let this happen too much as there is a lot to say.

IE: My continuing education is looking to STILL be a fight to the end!
More in a little bit...
