|During a lifetime, there are few people|
who deeply influence your life.
Even less who when you sit back and
reflect actually changed your way of thinking
and how you see the world.
The thought of someone who you never met
affecting you to that degree seems unfathomable.
River Phoenix did that for me,
and I assume for most of you.
He had a connection to the world,
for those wanted to feel it.
He didn't have to say a word,
it was all in his eyes.
Reality at its best.
He was a conveyer of truth and hope.
Thank you River. I love you.
