for some of my best friends today is a very meaningful day; it was two years ago that mitch was killed. there are a lot of things that could be said about this, but i think there are two take-aways that resonate with me more and more over time:
1. do the things that make you happy*.
2. take care of the people who you love.
and it may just seem like the most basic fucking stuff but those were the only things that allowed me to get to today with all my pieces put back roughly in place. so today i am going to play my third round of minigolf in 18 hours, get breakfast with andy, visit mitch, listen to soul music, write, and tell the people i love that i love them etc etc.
we are alive, and this is important to remember.
*if the things that make you happy are oppressive and bullshit and tread on the humanity of others fuck you and don’t do them. change your life instead.
