" lights the way "

---

finding the words like a struck match in the darkness. living life like a poem endlessly describing the myriad of ways it could all turn out.

wishing for the best, preparing for the best. there is no worst anymore, just preparation.

second chances, third chances, fourth and fifth. as many chances as it takes to get it right.

honesty and truth when strength of character is not enough, heart and belief when the body is not enough, songs and music when words are not enough, dreams and wishes when reality is not enough.

tonight's homework:

draw a comic strip starring yourself in an adventure, even if the adventure is eating a bowl of cereal, because silly fun can be creative too.
