“There's no time like the present,
No present like time.
And life can be over in the space of a rhyme.
There's no gift like friendship
And no love like mine.
Give me your love to treasure through time.”
Georgia Byng, Molly Moon's Hypnotic Time Travel Adventure

David Sedaris
“Every day we're told that we live in the greatest country on earth. And it's always stated as an undeniable fact: Leos are born between July 23 and August 22, fitted queen-size sheets measure sixty by eighty inches, and America is the greatest country on earth. Having grown up with this in our ears, it's startling to realize that other countries have nationalistic slogans of their own, none of which are 'We're number two!”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Kevin Smith
“Only someone who doesn’t understand art tells an artist their art somehow failed. How the fuck can art fail? Art can’t be graded, because it’s going to mean something different to everyone. You can’t apply a mathematical absolute to art because there is no one formula for self-expression.”
Kevin Smith, Tough Shit: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

David Sedaris
“I just looked at the pattern of my life, decided I didn't like it, and changed.”
David Sedaris, Barrel Fever

David Sedaris
“whenever I read a passage that moves me, I transcribe it in my diary, hoping my fingers might learn what excellence feels like.”

Description: This was written in response to a prompt contest of a writing group I recently joined. It was well-received and I liked writing it. Enjoy!
