Thanks

Does saying
thank you
mean more
when you’re
not sure who
to say it to or
what exactly
you are really
thankful for?

I think the
answer is yes.

And I guess
I am thankful
for the question.

Read more books and write more poems and stop saying sorry. Actually, you never say sorry; just stop feeling sorry. You have nothing to apologize for.

I literally feel like crying because there is so much wrong with the world at large and the world right here, and there is so much I haven’t done yet and so many decisions I still have to make . I wish I wasn’t still so scared. I’ve come so far… but it’s not like I could see the end of the road if I looked – the road doesn’t end. That’s the point. You’ve just got to make sure you’re wearing the right shoes. And that you’ve picked up the right travel companions along the way. I don’t often cry when I “should,” only when things are going well. I think those moments make me cry because my life has conditioned me to presume they will soon end.

And I’m usually right, at that.

Not this time, kids. Not this time.
