Once, I applied and interviewed for a job at The Onion. This may or may not have been the thank you card I sent. Because, well, I think I’m funny.
True story. To be fair, if The Onion gives you a job interview, how seriously are you supposed to take them?
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
Life gets twisted if you let it. Don’t let it.
