Dear Jon,

As always, reading your article makes me laugh through tears. It’s sad & funny & true, & damn that chicken — time is just not linear.

Maybe life is a false start every day, you’re simply more aware of it than others. I always feel like a round peg in a square hole world. Most days survival is the goal. I don’t plan on ever killing myself, but it’s sort of nice & freeing to know that there’s that option available. I think the main difference between us is that I want to live when it rains & die when it’s sunny.
