What lasts forever? stories to hear and retell

Old house with a donkey in the front yard

Here’s to finding a thousand noble causes, a thousand reasons to live like rain and to write like fire, a thousand perfect songs, a thousand rare and beautiful words, a thousand bands playing their music through all our surviving nights, a thousand perfect photographs, a thousand stories to hear and retell, regardless of whether they’re true or made up, a thousand ways to talk about love, a thousand ways to rebel, a thousand ways to escape before we run out of time.
