Things to believe:
All imperfections are translated into beauty
by the alchemy of lovers’ eyes.
An old house in the city can become a garden
open to tiny flying dinosaurs and stripey, bouncy creatures.
As the sun comes up, even the city holds its breath
until the birds start their day.
Gratitude is everything: even pain can be a map
to one’s own best future.
It is not necessary to earn one’s right to breathe,
to be alive, present and happy in the world.
It is never too late to live happily ever after.
