Ten Things That Help

1. Pie.*


2. Friends and family, their kind words and sweetness.

3. This fella.


I like to imagine I'm writing an obituary for Minnow (a real one, published--in my imagination--in the New York Times), in which I refer to Theo the Cat as his "protégé."

4. Mom and Dad, and the Caribbean parade that went down their street on Sunday.


5. Taking a walk, the sky, the ocean, people being weird, birds, the smell of burnt toast.


6. Books.

7. Coffee.


8. Work.

9. Naps.


10. Puppy porn.




*Ooh, that pie photo is blurry because I was like "HURRY UP HURRY UP PIE, PIE FOR ME." Here is the recipe, and I swear this was the best pie I've ever made and one of the best I've ever eaten. I whipped crème fraîche with a little sugar to dollop.

Oh, my. That pie does sound pretty darn good.

Glad some things are helping, friend. We talk about you and Minnow here every day, and we have no plans to stop.

Does this big post of cute animals help? http://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/can-you-get-through-this-post-without-squealing

Thanks, friends. It helps to know we're in your thoughts, and NOTHING helps more than that blog post of cute animals. That'll cure just about anything, I'll bet.
