This lack of intellectual depth and civil discourse is what happens when I don’t spend enough time on Twitter. I’ll try harder next week.
5 Things You Should See
1. This amazing image elicits so much emotion. Any display of sheer joy such as this, holds a place in my heart.

2. The parents of a 12-year-old who recently passed away found a letter she wrote to her future self. It’s not so much the words, but the playful image I envision, of her writing this letter, that makes it so heartrending.
3. Peter Pan interrupts the show to propose to Wendy. Enough said.
4. 9-year-old blows away everyone. People are just standing there, mouths hanging open and I’ve got chills going on for longer than I can remember.
