hugs all around! here's my submission
my grooveworthy best friend matt has been a part of my life for the past seven years, and here are just a few of the many wonderous things about him...
-matt has an amazing gift with words... they flow from his mouth like a thin strand of satin ribbon, and the phrases wind themselves around a person, enveloping him or her in such exquisite care, it's impossible to be wrapped up in anything else.
-matt has incredibly nimble fingers... he plays the rhythm guitar, and in that, he's the backbone of any ensemble there could possibly be... just as he is in any of his friends' lives... very versatile, yet very vital.
-matt has extreme patience and tolerance... as my naivete slowly dissipates, he still loves me just the same, and never pokes fun of my prior oversights or ignorant views. he nurtures a soul while also providing guidance to a more open mind. he's calm, pacifistic, and empathetic.
-matt is realistic. while he is a romantic, he doesn't let ideals intervene with his logic. he lets his heart lead him, and then lets his mind catch up, to follow through on his intuition.
-finally, matt is brave. he's weathered a lot, and his family isn't all that accepting of his bohemian and nomadic lifestyle. he does what he feels is right for himself and for the people he cares about. he takes a lot of shit for being the emotional sensitive guy, but he's nothing like the "emo" guy... he doesn't pretend to be emotional... he just is. he will always find a way to keep in touch with his close friends... he won't let them go... but at the same time, he has to let himself go and do what it is that makes him happy... even if it leaves him broke.
