You're a very helpful friend. As I slogged through the snow on my way to work this evening, I was thinking of composing this entry and thought, "I bet if I got stuck that Nate would come help dig me out." You have helped many people move their households (including me). You answer questions honestly and with tact. You also know how to accept help when it's offered and needed and that makes people feel like you care about them; that they are in your thoughts.
I very much enjoy reading your writing. I don't remember your fiction all that well, but it was in the Liavek collections which I enjoyed tremendously. As I read your LiveJournal or apa entries, I can hear your voice and cadence in speaking come through them. Sometimes I can even hear your gestures.
So those, my friend, are a few of the ways you rock.
