2513217764_740fdd6afa I never thought I’d be titling a post after a KC and the Sunshine Band song. Then again, I never thought I’d be a Formerly who has so little time that she showers only when she absolutely has to, either, so there you go.

My friend B.–despite having lived perhaps 14 lives in her 42ish years, most of them filled with ample, potentially soul-crushing evidence of the essential baseness of humankind–has nonetheless emerged the most relentlessly sunny person I have ever met. And not the kind that you suspect has had a lobotomy or simply chosen to ignore the bad for the sake of survival. She is truly in it. She has coffee and maybe a cigarette with her dark side, says goodbye, and then sends me quotes like these:

“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces to their hearts.” – Martin Buxbaum

Thank you, B. And keep it coming, love.
