one time i forced my mom to play pokemon for at least half an hour and all she did was catch a butterfree and name it lowfat
so i was at the dollar store and they had these “inspirational stones” with happy words on them
and i found one that really spoke to me
I’m not going to write my feelings,
not because I do not want anyone to
but because I do not want to read them.
There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.
Why do you love me? and a stark naked pause. I looked away. I didn’t know whether to begin with "because you are…" or "because you make me feel like…" Silence. I didn’t know. No possible response ever stood a verbal chance. Too predictable, right? You masterfully changed the subject. Wordlessness. "Because you quicken my heart. Because you do. Because you are."
