Fearless hearts and great pumpkins

Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin.

“To get through this life with any kind of self-respect at all, you need two things: an inquisitive mind, and a fearless heart.” –Steve Earle.

Like Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin – Linus has a fearless heart, one that’s been broken many times before, and he just comes back for more. You could call that kind of faith and optimism stupid, like Lucy does. And you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. But for some reason tonight I’m hoping against hope that the Great Pumpkin visits me on Halloween night and leaves me a fearless heart, too.
