Sleep my little baby-oh
Sleep until you waken
When you wake you’ll see the world
If I’m not mistaken…

Kiss a lover
Dance a measure,
Find your name
And buried treasure…

Face your life
Its pain,
Its pleasure,
Leave no path untaken.

– Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

“I want my kids to have the things in life that I never had when I was growing up. Things like beards and chest hair.”
