“I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.”
It’s so easy, on dark days, to notice nothing but the shadows, nothing but the worst of monsters hiding in the corners of our eyes. It’s so easy to find the faults and imagine the worst and forget the rest. Resist this trap, resist it with all you have and remember…only when it’s dark do the stars learn how to shine. Shadows are only cast because Light spills across the world. There will always be darkness, but there will forever be the light to drive it out.
All of my best thoughts go out to Boston and those affected today.
