This is a picture of a corrugated metal building smack in the center of downtown Comfort, Texas. It seems to be held together with duct tape, leftover bits of metal strapping and a handful of rusted screws.

“be comforted in the fact that the ache in your heart and the confusion in your soul means that you are still alive, still human, and still open to the beauty of the world, even though you have done nothing to deserve it. And when you resent the ache in your heart, remember: You will be dead and buried soon enough.”
