Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

W.S. Merwin
"They say, a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for."
Tom Bodett
"…and you drink a little too much and try a little too hard.
And you go home to a cold bed and think, ‘That was fine’.
And your life is a long line of fine."
Gillian Flynn
