Pic of the Day
Today is the twins’ birthdays. They are 11.
Coming after yesterday’s Boston heartbreak there’s a lot of inspirational quotes floating around this morning, little islands of well wishes to provide some rest in the middle of an ocean of sadness.
But it’s all stolen time we’re using in this life, friends, so today we won’t waste a second of it trying to make sense of yesterday. Instead, we’ll just eat some cake, maybe take a bike ride. Maybe we’ll find some frozen yogurt. The everyday is epic enough. Let’s do that for a while.
Take time to breath. Be at peace.
Thought we’d begin the day with a remembrance of Kurt Vonnegut, who passed six years ago today. Meena pointed out recently that our culture commemorates the passing of politicians and soldiers, and perhaps we ought to remember the poets and writers as well. We couldn’t agree more. So, happy Kurt Vonnegut day everyone, do you have any favorite quotes?
