I’m cleaning this entryway for you to come through and I’m really counting on you to take me to the moon and back. Halfway won’t do. I want the ride, sure, but that’s not my only hope with this exchange. The amount of upkeep and diligent attention to detail I’ve invested just to make sure you notice when you come through…that deserves the hard promise of a full round trip. That deserves taking me up to the highest mountain and carrying me all the way back down, even if you break your back doing it. I don’t care about the amount of time it takes, I don’t care about the effort or the words or the intention. I only care that you take me to out somewhere I’ve never been and bring me back in one piece. Until then I’ll just sort of putz around and keep making sure everything looks tip-top. [Ryan Nimmo]
