Do you ever just lie on your back staring up at the blue blue sky in an amphitheater in Indiana in between both of your parents who are happy and in good health, after getting off the phone laughing hysterically with one of your best friends back in Boston, one of so many intelligent, interesting, creative, beautiful people you get to spend your life with, after hugging your brilliant sardonic brother and his brilliant adorable wife and sending them back to Ann Arbor to get their PhDs, after kissing your beautiful, hilarious, talented boyfriend who makes your heart thumpathump goodbye at the airport, and think god, even with the premature joint deterioration and the unknown variables like lotteries and car crashes and book publications and even with the void, you are just so unjustifiably lucky, like so much you can't even take it or understand what you could have done right in any past life to deserve all this, and you just wish you could find someone or something to thank for all of this, this way everything is here, now?

Okay, maybe it's just me.
