Hey, it's a small thing, but it exists. And so the answer is yes. You know, like as in positive. When you want the prize tomato, it's only really the reflection of your heart. Like a blade of grass is, on a big wide hill. Hey, tell Nixon that, and watch him take a shit on the pot, and say: My God, I'm a part of mankind. For you. And whatever kind of life you've got planted in the field of planets. You know? And how the only answer is: Yes, to everything.
