Your brothers can take your beautiful, attractive coat of many colours from you, but they cannot take your inspired, inventive mind of many colours from you.
What’s inside is far superior to what’s outside. They can destroy the coat ON YOU, but they cannot destroy the coat IN YOU.
The ‘coat’ IN YOU can, and doubtless will, produce a million, incomparably beautiful coats ON YOU.
And on countless others. Anywhere.

Time is a game-changer, the processor of all things.
Choose your fight. If you must fight at all, that is.

Live in peace. Now. Daily. Some things are not worth your muscle.
You must learn to forget Eseks and Sitnahs, Joseph.
And always will.
Don’t take this message to Mary.
This message is for JOSEPH.
