This was not my idea. When Grace set it up yesterday, and then asked, I almost said, “No” or “That’s for Halloween.” Fortunately, that switch clicked off before I fully activated the negative response.
I said, “Yes.”
In 2008, let’s all keep protesting the war, interrogating the candidates’ messages, and resisting sloth.
Don’t forget, though, to sometimes flick the “yes” switch. Ride the roller coaster or, at least, the waves. Ski again. Dance in public. Have a tea party. See your friends more. Smile wide enough to show your teeth. Leave the beds unmade. Write, sing, sew, draw, paint messily and off-key.
Repeat a few times.
