Try as I might, I don’t think I will ever be able to adequately communicate the peace and strength that I draw from these 27 words — but I shall definitely spend the rest of my life making the attempt. For me, this is The Answer to The Great Question — and it’s just so fucking simple.
Of course it is; it would be, wouldn’t it?
My definitive life mantra…from a surprising source — some soft and flowery Lifetime Intimate Portrait show that I would never, ever watch and just happened to stumble upon whilst dancing channels. That’s how my greatest lessons and revelations always appear — from the corner of my cold, cold eye and when I least expect them:
“I get it now; I didn’t get it then. That life is about losing and about doing it as gracefully as possible…and enjoying everything in between.”
