It’s my #birthday
today. Forty three full rotations around the sun. I tried to post this last night but #instagram
doesn’t want to behave properly for me and maybe it’s a better post now, in this moment of rare solitude, quiet reflection. Experience is a great teacher. .
I was gifted #iambecoming
(the hottest book on the market) by my fairy sister/queen/goddess, who according to my old and wise 2-year old manchild knows where the best wishes blow and how to catch them. She gets me. #gratefulfortheamazingwomeninmylife
There is so much to celebrate #somuchlove #Hanukkahwishes #feliznavidad #yuletide
and so many great things accomplished in the year we are ending, and many that have come before it. I’ve come so far and have learned so many things and yet there is more to come, destined to come. #writteninthestars
All that lies ahead, all that I will become. .
There’s been such an outpouring of kindness and outreach. I love the power of words and of digital to connect us together. To allow us to grow, in sight of one another. I love what I get to do and the people I get to do it alongside. It is a privilege. .
The world can be an ugly place. A place of horrors. It can be lonely. It can feel like you are alone. I carry and try to hold on to the memories and the teachings that I’ve received. The amazing people who have helped me #riseup
My mother cooking and giving me advice, shielding my innocence and feeling my sorrows. The places that have held me, sheltered me and propelled me. I feel the presence of my ancestors all the time and know the power my guardian angel holds. It makes me mighty when I feel vulnerable. .
The year ahead is rich with its delectable promise of things to come. It’s exciting and I am open to its growth and what’s in store. #toanewyear
