"and I wish all the people I love the most
could gather in one place
and know each other and love each other well
and I wish we could all go camping
and lay beneath the stars
and have nothing to do and stories to tell
we'd sit around the campfire
and we'd make each other laugh
(the song my blog is named after)
strong tent men.
i was super helpful. chet's a slacker.
i love them so.
at which point i repented of being grumpy we were going camping in illinois.
so very grateful that from
thailand, alabama, pennsylvania, new york, and oregon,
we were able to be together.
(we went to college together.
we went to colorado.
we went to new york.
i respect and admire each of them beyond words.
they know me better than almost anyone.
and i love them a lot.)
