Today I remembered when a friend tried to hurt himself.
Today I remembered when a friend vanished from my life.
Today I remembered the pain of an infected jaw.
Today I remembered my grandmother.
Today I remembered my ferrets.
Today I remembered fearing for my wife’s sight.
Today, a friend thanked me for loving him.
Today, a friend found me again.
Today, a doctor said things can get better.
Today, rains poured as I cuddled under a blanket with my wife.
Today, I remembered that ideas and creativity and the yearning want to make people feel joy is enough of a reason to want to wake up tomorrow.
Today was a really good day.
