Yes, it's about a girl. A girl I was in love with, head over heels (even though that saying makes little sense) and blinded by the emotion... so much that I couldn't see her for who she really was, or recognize her faults along with the happiness she inspired within me. I don't regret my devotion to her, nor would I do things any differently... but in some ways, she seriously broke me for a while. Serious relationships didn't even seem possible for me again for quite some time, since it was such a rare thing for me to even consider wanting one in the first place. Anyway, some of those feelings still linger... but I've begun to let them go (after two years, I'd better have... right?) and I guess this is generally how most people feel after getting hurt by someone who they believed loved them as much as they were loved... right?
So... mostly I just want to see how all of you are, remind me that I'm alive and well, and tell you that I miss you. I'll find a way/excuse for us northern California locals to get together again, and see how many of the rest of you I can inspire to make a long drive or flight up here to hang with the rest of us. :)

P.S. I drive a Mazda 6 wagon now, by the way. It doesn't look like a fast car, but I've abused its 230 horsepower to ditch sports cars on a regular basis. I'll have to take a picture of the back of it for those of you who haven't seen the 69, too. ;)
