Its 21 days until my first day of school. Found out a friend of mine passed away today and it saddened me, deeply. I wrote about it but I couldn't bring myself to post it. Instead, I'll share an excerpt from "The Little Prince" ... it was my friend's favorite book.
"You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them... in one of those stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing... And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure . . . And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, 'Yes, the stars always make me laugh!' And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you...”
