thank you just thank you
for being you and for being in my life.
every day i wake up
is utter disbelief
that this is actually my life
with so much laughter incredible food dancing adventures inspiration amazing work
and you all in it.
the memories we’ve already created together in the last couple of weeks
are among the best of my collection of twenty-one years of amazing living.
truly, they are bright and they shine through the darkness
of feeling alone and lost every now and then.
so as i get ready
in the mornings
the foggy cold fall mornings
i will continue to say my prayer of joy and gratitude
to have found this place at exactly this time
and all of you.
in the days and weeks and months ahead
let’s continue to celebrate our youth and our freedom.
let’s feel the prickle and the urgency and the longing.
let’s share the tears and the fears
and all the blessings that are far greater.
let’s get to know one another.
let’s grow out and deeper and beyond
but never up.
here’s to life. to all of it. and it’s only just begun! we’ve got time! (let’s pretend we do anyway!)
with so much love,
