May you be a clown and a fool
in all that you give to the world.
May you love unreasonably,
wastefully and unjustifably.
Let there be whimsy and improvisation in the grace of your gifts--
spontaneous, joyful, laughable and unpredictable.
Love weirdly in ways that surprise and subvert.
Stand before the calculus of this world and be accounted a shock and an embarrassment,
the circus of your life a scandal among those with proper, tamer tastes.
May your love be wrong in all the ways that are right.
