“You,” he said, “are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world,
and that, I believe is why you are in so much pain.”

Please, don't stop. Don't stop being authentic and real and contagious with life to be lived. I might not know the quiet details of your life, but I know this: you are unashamed of joy and proud to smile. In that few spaces of time I saw you, your smile spoke more truth than any conversation I could have had with you. It wasn't just a smile; it was one of few genuine ones I have seen. And that blessed my soul today. You are something real, in a terribly false world. Pain is gonna come, but don't stop.
Don't you dare be afraid to stop
loving, giving, living.
Because darling, after all, what's life without these?
my (imaginary) first meeting with you,
my lovely readers
i hope this made your eyes smile today
because that, my friend, is one of the beautiful(est) smiles
