Oh this one is going to hurt.
I am falling faster than I said I would
or thought I could.
And you aren't helping any.
You're so comforting and creative and beautiful and fullfilling.
I am falling.
I will flap my arms and pretend to be flying.
Help me!
Catch me with your smile.




Peter Alexander McWilliams (August 5, 1949 – June 14, 2000) was a writer and self-publisher of best-selling self-help books. He was an advocate for those suffering from depression. And, in his later years, he was a cannabis activist. Terminally ill with AIDS and cancer, he became a vocal campaigner for the legalization of medical cannabis. Though medical marijuana was legal under California state law, he was investigated by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and convicted of violating marijuana laws.
