As a teenager, I went through an intense Tennessee Williams phase, reading plays, journals, letters and biographies, and one thing from all that reading has stuck with me: his motto, en avant:
Sometimes he would be able to work, and sometimes he wouldn't. He was tired. But he still was so courageous. He was so disciplined. His feeling about life was always positive. One must go on. 'En avant, en avant.' It was his cry.And so, forward.
Sean, Hugh and I will be marching in D.C. beside friends and family; I will share pictures on Instagram (@evencleveland) and here on Monday. Take care, friends.
