Anything good in here?

Because of Aly’s death and things unsaid, I thought I would write a line about everyone I love, just in case I die any minute now, or anyone I love dies any minute now. At least I won’t have that regret. But then I thought, what if I forget someone? Or what if one thing I say about one person is so much better than something I say about someone else?? Filing this under the category of: you can’t win.

Except someone recently pointed out to me that once in a blue moon you do, therefore saying ‘you can’t win,’ isn’t really accurate. Okay, so perhaps the best, most realistic way to approach the rest of life is: Once in a freaking blue moon you win so hang in there.

Here is Finney, making sure he’s not missing anything.
