From our half decorated tree to yours, wishing you merry things and peace, wishing you moments of pure joy, plucked from restful days with loved ones.

the laughing heart




your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
 
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
 
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
 
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
 
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
 
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
 
know it while you have it.
 
you are marvelous
 
the gods wait to delight
in you.


Charles Bukowski
