It has been an unusually stressful week, at many points an utter crap week, but I'm happy to report: there are good things in life. My friend Max emails that he's in love (I believe he says "madly") and that he's not just happy, but joyful. Joyful!
I can't be more pleased than to see someone I care about be so happy.
He adds, "Remember that bliss sometimes is right around the corner." And I don't doubt it -- it's just that it feels like I'm liable to turn that corner, and bliss'll run smack into me!
