I can tell you that I am happy in this life. I work for myself, answer to no one, come and go as I please. I wander the rooms of my world and find god and magic in the corners. I have good friends, good connections, an active creative life. I eat well, dream often, and make love with as much passion as all of that affords.
And yet…and yet…and yet.
I never stop expecting more.
