dear jake kirkwood,

"I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a whole lot more fun while they're doing it."
--Anne Lamott

jake, thank you for teaching me what it looks like to live life without even looking at your feet.

maybe i'll tear my gaze up from off the sidewalk a little more often because of you.
