A poem from October 2017.
Have a somber day, a day of remembering and singing the songs you liked best. A day filled with songs like you felt when you first heard Fade Into You.
Have a sober day, a day like how you felt when you heard of the death of David Bowie.
Have a sky’s-the-limit day, walking around with your head in the cloudy blue forever.
Have a spring day, mud between your toes, leaning down to see the grass up close and being surprised and graced with the unforgettable sweetness of lily in the valley.
Have an overly-important, sonorous day where you nod your head and tip your hat to everyone like you’re a sea captain in charge of all the pilgrims.
Have a day where you work so hard and get so much done that you really deserve to order your favorite pizza and watch cartoons with your friends.
