Leave your mind behind, baby James

Sometimes? It's just this easy.

Sometimes? You just let your phone die and don't worry about charging it. Everyone can wait a few days. It's not the end of the world.

You stay up way too late, because you just don't want the day to end.

You try new things, because hey. You only live once, right?

Sometimes you turn 42 years old and you think about the personal ad you wrote almost exactly twenty years before. That silly, snarky little ad that got you the love of your life (and a book deal, can't forget that) and you are so overwhelmingly, profoundly grateful for every single bit of what you had to go through to get exactly where you are, right now.

It's not perfect. It will never be perfect. It's just exactly what it's supposed to be.
