I have a gob of cousins. I'm telling you, it's like close to a hundred if you count my cousins' children that I actually see from time to time. It could even be over a hundred for all I know.
But anyways. I have this one cousin who started a blog and he writes in fragmented, dramatic ways and puts real, raw stuff out there for everyone to read. While reading his blog a few weeks ago, I listened to one of the songs he embedded for a post and it was amazing. Amazingly loud. Amazingly purple. Amazingly gorgeous in a loud purple love sort of way.
It made me think about how enriched my life is because I am acquainted with a great deal of my extended family and, I guess, because there are so many of them. I want to express my love for all of my cousins. Throughout my life, I have had cousins making a difference at every turn. You are all so wonderful.
