True believers make me nervous and extremists of any stripe make me want to find the nearest exit. I prefer baby burps, warm kisses, layers of wet leaves in the forest, squash soup and silly adventures. I love to shop on Black Friday. Once, I went to Woolworth’s in Manhattan on Christmas Eve to buy stocking stuffers for my young son and little nephews. Love, fun, love. 3D glasses. Feeling better after a cold. Getting paint or mud under your fingernails. Thanking the waitress and meaning it. Life.
“Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.” -Kahil Gibran
