Spirit has decided to take flight early in the morning. (This is her first time) The night before, she calls up Body and Mind and discusses her plan at length They bring in Doubt for consultation So she packs all necessary items including a jet-pack For one must always look at the possibility of failure Then preens her feathers for a couple of hours And mumbles prayers till dawn cracks She wakes up late next morning Spirit has now decided to put the plan away for next day.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, growing up
sucks. Most grownups complicate things. And my insistence on simplicity is
mistaken for denial, or worse, innocence. Every few days someone announces that I lower my
expectations from life. Balls to you, I say.
