The shining hour has arrived. Something different has been waiting for a long, long time.
My wife for one has never stood so straight or looked so beautiful. Either this depth and richness is a wild new thing or I just passed third grade. Best not go into that. I’ve never felt so strongly that I have a friend. She always tells me I can do absolutely anything I want. Well then.
For my part, I understand more clearly what I’m here for. I never thought that that would happen. This morning she told me, “You look better. Not so worried…”
I never saw my father when he wasn’t worried. Now that I’ve outlived his span of years, I may have out-evolved him, too. That’s what you get for not hugging your kid, you’re just not carried along. You get the things you think about. That’s just the way it is. The reason I never killed myself or ended up in jail has nothing to do with those who gave me birth. There is a deeper context.
I am blameless in the shining hour.
Now if I can only learn to work!
