Kindness is like sunlight, said the platypus

Why It Matters

Sherri and I eventually got back together.  I don’t remember the specifics other than a lot of crying and the appearance of a little stuffed purple dragon on the hood of the Quincymobile.  I’m a sucker for a kind gesture.

That’s actually at best false bravado and at worst an outright lie.  I did her no favors by accepting her kind gesture.  No, I thrive on the tiniest display of affection.  Kindness is like sunlight to me, and without it I’m lost in absolute darkness.  Self-doubt hovers in that bleak night like death, waiting for any opportunity to wrap me in its shroud.
