Ah, my friends!
We all had some great times occasionally.
Red, blue, and yellow & orange times.
Not everything was that black you have to admit.
We all saw some glimpses of beauty & happiness
as we moved ahead,
even in stagnation,
I still believe in all things unimportant & useless for others as I move ahead, as we all do,
all alone in our essential binding loneliness, still believing in Paradise,
very very invisible but transparently shining and inevitable.
So I celebrate it all now, late this night,
and drink to you all -

Jonas Mekas
