Trying to find some light

I’m having a terrible week, and I’ve been trying to write about it for a very long time now. The only things that are coming out are sad, angsty, angry, and depressing. 100% LiveJournal, in other words.

So, rather than add more gothic poetry to the internets, I decided to say a few nice things about the people I don’t often talk to. In alphabetical order:

amandarochelle: You’ve always known what’s important. Thank you, and please — take care of yourself.

cephalopod: Do you remember the conversation we had over coffee, where you shared with me your infrared photography, and we gave each other secret advice? I do.

dem: Don’t get caught in the middle of scene politics. You’re too good for that. Do what’s best for you.

dharmasatya: I wish I had known you better when I was younger and wiser — I think we could’ve had some wicked ESD time.

essinem: The stars burn brighter when they know you’re watching; they, like us, are hoping to inspire you.

prox2: Y’know, if you came with us, we’d be un-fucking-stoppable. Just sayin’.

siksyko: If I won the lottery or otherwise inherited a business tomorrow, you would be the first person I’d hire.

substance_p: Sometimes I think it’d be a good idea to rent a van, drive to Toronto, and literally fucking kidnap you. I think that might be best for everyone involved.

t0yb0x: We love you, you know.

zeewhiteninja: Do you remember when there was only one set of footprints? That’s when I was carrying you.

There were many more, but the words on my screen are starting to blur. One more, for someone more familiar:

Leslie — you’re my partner in all things, and the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known. You and me, okay?

I love you.

  1. And I need you now tonight
    And I need you more than ever
    And if you’ll only hold me tight
    We’ll be holding on forever
    And we’ll only be making it right
    Cause we’ll never be wrong together
    We can take it to the end of the line
    Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
    I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
    We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
    I really need you tonight
    Forever’s gonna start tonight
    Forever’s gonna start tonight


  2. Sorry to hear your week’s been so rotten. I was wondering about you when I didn’t see you on Tuesday. If it helps, I think that many of the nice things you’ve said about your friends could be applied to you as well. You are a very wonderful human being, Jai. *hug*
