Dear Miss, Vol. VI

Leave a comment

And they came together and heard Dear Miss say:

“Must you think how to put one foot before the other when walking?

Must you think how to breathe?

Must you think how to chew your rice?

Must you think how to scratch an itch?

Must you think how to smile?

Do not think how to be you. Be as the morning dew in the meadow, which does nothing to prove it is the morning dew in the meadow. It is the morning dew because it is the morning dew.

You are you because you are you.”
