When in doubt, lend the ear, write the note, share the hug, give the compliment. Sip coffee outside on the stoop in the sunshine. Dance in a dark kitchen to old tunes on the radio. Laugh at the bad joke, cry at the movie, read the book til dawn. Take the leap, make the time, risk the risk. Extend the invitation. Smile at strangers. When in doubt, say yes.
When in doubt, go to the circus.
