for him

stairwell accompaniment:Counting Crows

Today I send to you a sudden, unplanned nap. I send to you a bowl of ripe fruit that stays that way until you are ready to eat it. A paintbrush that whispers to you what to paint. I send to you special glue for the broken places. Beauty in ugliness that you see. I send to you a deep breath. I send to you your favorite book read cover to cover. Daily prayers and the constancy of love. I send to you harder laughter and more tears. Knowledge of your resilience and fortitude. I send to you brand new underwear. One delux cello serenade. I send to you a hammock in the shade.

“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.” Albert Einstein
