“Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.”
— Peter S. Beagle, shared on Facebook by my daughter, Hayle
Perhaps my daughter has a point.
If the unicorn represents that elusive part of us – the part which strives to be good, the part which yearns to be free of vice, frustration, depression, guilt, anger, shame, and fear – then perhaps we should all strive to be a unicorn.
For what it’s worth, I think there’s a unicorn in all of us.
And maybe the unicorn isn’t really that elusive.
Today’s gift of “time” … Gave a McDonald’s gift card to a homeless lady, while on the way to martial arts with my daughter.
