Friday Conclusion

My illustrious moon was shining brighter than mere mortals should be capable of comprehending tonight and so as I took Cooper out for his next to last nightly pee-pee I immediately thought of a piece of paper that I have, that I have kept with me since the moment I found it:

And so when Cooper and I came back home I went foraging for this piece of paper with these glorious four sentences I scribbled on it and I read it over and over and rubbed my solar plexus in that way you do when you feel true love and I felt happy that I took the time to write this piece down, that day in the library, when I saw it nine million years ago—I just knew I’d need to carry it along with me in my life.  Which brings me to my point and my conclusion:

IF NOTHING ELSE, AT LEAST YOU KNOW YOU HAVE THE DIAMOND SHARP INSTINCT TO COLLECT THE PRECIOUS THINGS  AND WORDS AND IMAGES AROUND YOU THAT WILL SPEAK TO YOU IN YOUR DEEPEST DARKEST CONFUSION AS WELL AS  YOUR MOST GRATEFUL HAPPY FACE BOUNTY HOUR

Choose What Speaks To You Most Deeply and Then Stick With That,
