“ some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. but the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion, and empathy. ”

a beautiful and fantastically stylish short about the power of friendship, accepting help and our ability to heal. brilliant work, Ava DuVernay

i know you’d be so disappointed in all these tears. you’d tell me to man my light-skinned ass up, but this sucks. and i’m sad. so bear with me. our last dinner and convo was perfect, thank you for that. i don’t want to be selfish but, i just wanted to have more convos, hear more stories. compare ourselves to the champ once more. i’ll miss you, Ed. i’d rather have you here, but i know that’s not what was intended. a soul as special as yours could never have belonged here for very long. i will never forget our first perfect convo or our last. i hope you’re resting well on that golden porch. i love you. save me a rocking chair and cigar.
