the optimist

i went to the Sally Ann
to find books to cut apart
for my art journal
and while i was there
the title of a book caught my eye
i bought it.
The Optimist
(one man's search for the brighter side of life)
my dear friend
has given me full permission
to mark up all my books
regardless of them being
"learning" works
or novels,
as this one is
and so far
i have laughed out loud more than once,
and underlined and circled a few secret messages.
such as:
"deep down, if you're an optimist,
you know that everything is going to be OK.
you don't know why-you just know.
It's like your little secret."
yes, i thought,
this man knows just how i think
and therefore,
i love him.
and i am only on page 33.
