Later that year- a Christmas version:

My girlfriend in college once recounted to me the parting scene of one of her
trips home. She was going through a bump in life, and went and spent
the weekend with her parents. Upon driving down the driveway to return from
this trip- her mother waved and called to her. C stopped and rolled down her car window to see what her mom wanted- and her mom just said, “C- God helps those who help themselves.” I always wished that saying were, “God helps those TO help themselves.” Most of the time- getting the damned ball rolling is where help is needed most--- once it’s rolling- the momentum, like a Godsend, will largely help take you the rest of the way.
Well- hope there’s a God. Guess I often need help in seeing the light.
Did I incorporate the word "help" enough?
Sos anyway- before I start making sense- I'll stop here.

Merry Holidays to all-

I've wondered what you do for a living, now I know, you keep the dark from closing the world to light, and you keep it open just enough for Santa Klaus to make it through each year-a worthy profession.
I'm in awe, fantastic piece, but most of all I like the Santa hat!
