The Dirtbag Diaries: The Journey Within
This week, one of the greatest men I’ve ever had the pleasure to know passed away. Kevin Kelly had a rare quality that is difficult to define – but I think I would call it “warm and calculating”. He was scrupulous, and had a profound intelligence, but he turned his perspicacity and perceptiveness to fraternity, and helping others. He held himself above no-one, and made time for everyone. Kevin had no enemies, and more friends than anyone else I can think of.
When I wrote The Journey Within, I had just made what I thought was the most difficult decision of my life. Looking back, I find it hard to relate. I am proud of – and at peace with – the decision I made; and I wouldn’t change it in a million years. I dedicate this piece to my good friend, Kevin Kelly. Wherever you go, we’ll always be with you; wherever we go, you’ll always be with us. We love you, Kevin. See you around.
