what I'm about to say may not be particularly elegant or clever
but it has the endearing quality of being the truth

what I'm about to do is not particularly delicate or imaginative
but it is good because it comes up from my toes

what your feeling right now is not faint nor ecstasy, passion nor toil
but it is uncommonly beautiful and warm to the touch

what we are right now is not revolutionary
but it is better to be than being without
