Wishes and truths.

The laughs. The uncontrollable laughs.
Giggle around the corner for an AIDS slide, for just drawing the tanned guy as a monkey.
The lunatic's laugh, the gentleman's laugh.
The guy-whose-stomach-always-aches-laugh.
The girl who believes in happy-endings-laugh.

Laughed. Laughed like I haven't laughed in years. Laughed like it is the end of the world. Laughed like there was no end to this world.

The laughs.
And. The end to a great day. :)

Little Princess.

"You know when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales? 
That fantasy of what your life would be –white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in your bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. 
Santa clause, the tooth fairy, prince charming –they were so close you could taste them. But eventually you grow up and one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. 
Most people turn to the things and people they trust. But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. 
At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. 
It turns up when you don’t really expect it. 
It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. 
The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after –just that it’s happy right now. 
See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. 
And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away."
