The laughing heart
Your life is your life. Don't let it be clubbed into dank of submussion. Be on the watch. There are
ways out. There is light somewhere. It may not to be much light but it beats the darkness. Be on the watch. The gods will ofer you chances. Know them, take them. You can't beat death but you can beat dead in life, sometimes. And more often you do learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it. You are marvelous, the gods wait to delight in you.
