I am friends with John Patrick Shanley on Facebook. It is pretty much a dream come true for every theatre nerd, despite the fact that he will friend anyone. Being buds with JPS is great for many reasons, one of them being his lovely poetic status updates. Like this one.
Of course, technically we also likely don't know half the pain and unfortunate incidents we've caused, so maybe it's a wash. Honestly though, it's good to know that we are little gifts in the universe, while realizing that we are not gifts to the universe. Thanks Johnny.
