Yesterday Was Another Day

You know, the Fimbulwinter comes and it's dark for seven years most of the day and I forget. I forget that the world isn't cold and lifeless and dark. I forget that not everyone is cynical, because it's better than brooding, or brooding because it's better than depressed. I forget that there are people who take things seriously, because it's not all a bitter joke. I forget there are people who aren't waiting for the next damn thing to come and bite them, and because they aren't they haven't armoured themselves against it. They are still vulnerable and can still be hurt. I forget this.

So here's what I suggest: if you love someone, tell them so. If someone has done something nice, say thanks. If someone deserves something nice (or even if you just suspect they may one day perhaps deserve it, if you're brooding or cynical at the moment) then do something nice for them. And if you've hurt someone (and what the hell did you think this post was about?) say sorry. Even if you're not in the depths of a Northern Hemisphere Winter.

So pick from this list whatever you like. I'm sorry. I don't know about nice, but here's a Bawdy 1970s Hospital. I may not say it to your face, but I do love you. And thanks!
