Last night I found myself weeping upstairs on a bus to New Cross.
Because of this. It’s a post from Jim Sweeney, about living with MS.
Here's a tiny excerpt:
'I have no advice on how to live life. Except this: (a) grab life by the ears every day and French kiss it to the ground and (b) don't get to old age clutching a list headed, "I wish I'd......"'
Do read the whole thing. It's very moving. And very funny. And the 'song' at the end is lovely.
And I only hope that when I get MS – or whatever it is that gets under my skin and drags me away to nowhere – that I can handle it with such divine sparkle.
Have a nice weekend and if it's any way a physical possibility, live it.
