what it was that i most want for people–
friends, strangers, whoever–
i would not hesitate to say
for them to be happy, and know they have value.
i am just barely wise enough to know i couldn’t bring to others what i don’t have myself.
and on the whole, i’ve been a very happy person.
and i still am.
and right now, i feel complete in myself.
a) i am sleepy and delirious.
b) i got a new camera to take on an upcoming trip to Disney World.
c) i will see the ocean on christmas day. sand between my toes and all.
d) something else i can’t quite put my finger on, but i am glad for it!
