The aim of life is to live May 16, 2008

Henry Miller once said, “The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware”.

Ben sent me a card with that quote on, today, completely out of the blue. It made me cry, because it was the sweetest thing that anyone has done for me in a long long time, and because it contained more love than I could ever feel I deserve. I read what he said to my mum over the phone, and her response was as emotional as mine. He’s lovely, and I know that he will be there for me through all of the stress of exams, all of the feeling like I can’t handle it, and all of the time to come, good or bad.

I also love him because he sends me texts like the one he just has – “I am a fish. Specifically a sardine”. I can only presume he’s squashed in tight on the train coming to visit me, being as he is traveling at rush hour. It’s great to know that I am not the only one who will say the most random sentences, pieced together of scraps of thought in my head. It is reassuring I can be as weird as I want and know that he’s just as peculiar!

What a pair of oddballs!

I am a beetroot. Specifically a beta vulgaris (Now hows that for random, eh?!)
