This is what you shall do:

Love the earth and sun and the animals, Despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, Stand up for the stupid and crazy, Devote your income and labors to others, Hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, Have patience and indulgence toward the people, Take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, Or to any man or number of men, Go freely with powerful uneducated persons, And with the young and with the mothers of families, Read these leaves in the open air, Every season of every year of your life, Reexamine all you have been told, At school at church or in any book, Dismiss whatever insults your own soul, And your very flesh shall be a great poem...

-Walt Whitman

I just got this in my "thank-you" card from Yidi and Charles...
It's on a magnet.
I've decided, that is a really good excuse to stick it on my fridge
and memorise it.

I haven't memorised anything new in a really long time...
and heavens knows how much fun whipping these things out at parties
can be!

No really, I like this...I'd like to have it in my head.

THANK-YOU, Yidi and Charles...
Being a part of your wedding was the Highlight of my Year.
It truly was.
