Better Than Everything Else

That's Stella, my nephews Jake and Dylan, and Max. Is someone saying "Do something funny with your mouth"? Is someone saying, "Be perfect! It's needed"? No. Nobody is saying these things. Instead there is one of millions and billions and billions of moments, which are strung together as a sort of necklace or choke hold, and it is paralyzed that way. And yet you find one. And you say, "I don't care about the other stuff....I don't even care." And it's a perfect moment, like every moment, even if Liam Rector has killed himself.
