"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

The Little Things

I got this card today. A get well card. It's from my autistic 45 year old uncle and despite everything that is known about autism, I know that my uncle loves me very much. We all get cards from him in my family, usually for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries... And it is definitely something I will never take for granted. He puts so much effort and love into these cards that it makes me smile everytime.

The inside of the card reads: "hopefully, you'll be feeling better real soon just before we go to your house during thanksgiving week. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids, plenty of rests, have relaxations and more. Get well, then!"

It's the little things in life that really make you smile and know that everything will be ok.

Love, smile. <3 thank you for love.
