Certainty Manifesto

Here is what I know for sure today:


Let me try that again. Here is what I am reasonably certain about today:


Okay, one more time, with feeling. Here is what I unequivocally think might possibly happen today:

The sun will rise.

The sky will be mostly blue.

The grass will be some shade of green.

People will talk, but no one will listen.

Change will come, but no one will notice.

The Earth will teem with life, but no one will fully live.

I am certain I will rise and dress myself in turquoise.

I am certain I will listen and notice.

I am certain I will live in full.
