An Uncle, A Best Friend

My uncle, my mom (his sister) and I were all born within 10 days of each other. Because of this we spent the first half of August celebrating each one of us in turn. Because of this, we were dubbed the “Leo Trio” thus banding us together for life.

My uncle Rick moved to France when I was about 15 and I have traveled there often to see him, making Paris feel like a home away from home. When I visit we drink wine while contemplating life, planning out our futures and journal in silence together. He is such a companion to my soul.

So, when I had the chance to visit him recently I took some video to capture both the peace and joy he brings to my life.
