No matter where you are tonight. No matter what you’re going through.
No matter how busy or bored, confused or tired, pissed off or content.
No matter if you’re grieving or celebrating, wound up or unwinding,
healing or crumbling, discovering or forgetting
or sitting in that place where these meet that has no name.
No matter if you’re hungry, full,
or consumed by some unspoken craving.
No matter if you’re satisfied or searching.
No matter if you’re scared or in denial or facing the facts.
No matter if you’re home or away,
here, there or neither here nor there.
No matter if you’re alone or surrounded, or surrounded yet alone.
No matter if you’re playing games on your phone or watching Netflix
or reading a book or trying to stay awake at work
or tucking kids in or wishing you were somewhere else
or unable to sleep or deep in a dream.
No matter what, I am so glad that we get to be here on the planet at the same time. I mean, what are the odds?
Billions of years, billions of people. And here we are. Here we are.
