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.


  1. Beautiful, Talen. <3

  2. Today a penguin bit your knee and told you if you’re ever sad to just come hug her because Talen hugs always make her feel better so maybe, just maybe a pengy hug can make you feel better.

  3. And see? You didn’t even have to use your AK. Today WAS a good day.
