Today being Friday, it’s your time to shine.  Shine in the manner of a gracious star, light years away, sending shoots of brilliance towards eyes it can’t be sure even exists, all this distance away to see it.  Shine in the way a shoe does, when it has just been proudly polished by its seven-year old owner, who has laboured over it, tongue out, and now likes to see her reflection in it as she trips her way to school.  Shine like a hero in a movie you alone know the ending to; shine like the damp side of pebbles on a beach which the locals don’t tell the tourists about; shine like only you can; shine, shine, shine.
