I don't know about you
I'm not sure there is anything better than waking up on Friday and knowing that

The world has been busy this week
I've been on a recoup from spending the weekend
with my old college friend

We sat around talking

it is subtle

"don't know if the world is ready for it"
not my problem.
It is Friday
it is spring
I am alive
Big Daddy is beside me (it is his birthday weekend)

I got up this morning,
