In the summer I pet-sit at this house often

It's a married pair of tenured professors. They have no kids. But four cats and two white haired golden retrievers. 

I'm not the actual sitter. Just the bf of somebody responsible enough to be tasked with such duty. We come here throughout the year, but more particularly in the summer. 

The house is on a hill. Along its slope are tall trees. If you sit in their patio -- the kind where there is a roof and mosquito nets, it feels like you are looking out from a tree house.

I was listening to Drake's More Life here last year. And through their Sonos sound speakers I fell in love. Something about Drake coming to terms with growing up. Figuring out his place within his career, his friends, his family. It painted a picture that wasn't perfect. Because life isn't perfect. But something about life makes it about the best thing you could ever have, just so long as you have it.

Now about 365 days later, I'm here again listening to More Life. A lot of my friends feel angst over their approaching birthdays. For some the dreaded 30 approaches. For others, it's here. It took me a long while to get here, but I'm glad I'm here. 

Here is not a house. Is not Sonos speakers. Is not Drake's music. Here is life. This is life.

More life.

      @abrahamKim - HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY Sir Abe. Are you another wise teenager on this site. I am afraid to ask people their age when I image that they should be a much older experienced person.
      Regardless - I hope you had a wonderful day and like I do, you should celebrate it all month.

      @keni

      woah working full time at 16 in a regular job??

      lmao so what's the significance of the age 16? You don't have to tell me your 'biological' age, but I do wish to know what the 'spiritual' age of 16 symbolizes.

      @abrahamKim - Nothing spiritual really. Life was awful at 16. Just wanted to make it ridiculous enough so you know I am kidding.

      @abrahamKim - Good question. Because I am NOT 25.

      haha, well we are NOT around the same age then. That's funny, I always thought you were older and wiser than me, but it turns out that you are only one of those things.
