|Today is August 23rd.|
I am doing what I always do on this day,
celebrating River Phoenix's life.
I first saw River's talent in Stand By Me
and knew I must learn more about this
remarkable actor and beautiful human being.
He stood out above so many.
River's free spirit and love of animals
touched my heart and now breathes in my soul.
I miss him, eternally.
