I offer this for no other reason than maybe you feel seen too. Maybe you know this feeling.

When we’re little and we’re tired, we resist it because we don’t want to miss anything. Cool stuff is happening downstairs and we want to be a part of it — the laughter, the clinking of glasses, the perfume and cigarette smoke and grownups in the living room.
